Corporate Money in Politics
Corporations have taken over the 2016 United States Presidential Elections.
This screenshot of a campaign donation request that I receieved recently:
Triple Match? Where is that matching money coming from? Corporations. This is why many people feel that the political system in the United States is out of control.
Not a Problem?
Don't think money is an issue in this Election? Consider this snip from the Ben and Jerry's website:
$200 may not sound like a lot of money, but in the last presidential election cycle less than ½ of one percent of Americans made a political donation of more than $200. Donating that kind of cash to a campaign is well beyond what many people and families can afford and if the decision is between funding a politician and buying a month’s worth of groceries, you can bet that food comes first. Besides, since when did free speech get so expensive?
Please support the fight to get the Corporations out of the elections via the 28th Ammendment to the Constituion. The reason why we need a constitution is to overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling in 2010.
Let the People Vote! Campaign Contributions have gotten out of control. Before we can control the government spending, we need to control the contribution spending.
