The Republicans just blocked the Bill for Campaign Reform.
Politicians in the US can accept large sums of money from corporations and the rich all because of "free speech". Lobbyist from Heath Insurance, Oil companies, Drug Companies and other major corporations are buying them out with ease.
They will mute others from becoming politicians who are more likely to tell you the truth.
With legalized bribery is it no wonder why many politicians are always blocking something good for the gullible masses.
Just watch the news, they are just fighting to reduce taxes for the rich, who will never go hungry or lose their lifestyle even if they pay badly needed taxes. But they will force the government not the help the unfortunate hardworking citizens who can't find jobs.
They are going to pay-back only those who funded their campaigns.
We only get lies in the name of free speech.
Yes, some will tell you the truth but they are too few and muted out too often.
