Bush appointee Alito part of majority that approved the landmark change in campaign finance. Not that it's much of a change.....b/c let's be serious....large companies through lobbying organizations/firms have been paying for legislation...since, well, before the industrial revolution.
But still....it's a brazen move where even the pretense that money buys favors has been eliminated.
How anyone can think that removing limits on donations and financing campaigns won't lead to more direct routes to buy political favor.....is beyond me.
"The big thieves hang the little ones."
IN healthcare news....Pelosi doesn't care if the Senate of our representatives of citizens who will foot the bill won't vote for the healthcare reform bill.....wants to use a sidestep to circumvent a vote that they cannot win.
Why even bother electing representatives when the rules laid out to pass legislation aren't even followed consistently?
