As happens all the time these days with politicians the world round ...sense,integrity and ethics put aside for greed.

We might have a decent country if it weren't for the lobbyists. And it's not their fault it's legal. Let's just have elections without the warchests.

This is exactly the type of thing that should be criminalized. These lobby groups and super Pacs have far too much influence in decisions that affect the entire nation. That 17% issuance tax by the FED if it were paid back into the Treasury for the benefit of the nation would help a lot too. Presently it goes back into the pockets of the international financiers outside of the US. Americans are paying for the privilege of issuing and using their own currency. What's wrong with that picture Mr. & Mrs. American?

Not the least bit surprised since they think they can throw their money around and get everything they want. Fracking: a dangerous and harmful process. Don't need, don't want it. Thanks Cal.

This just shows that lobbying and funding by special interest groups is the wrong way to conduct elections It's not democratic, though it may be legal.

Buying people again and again. Is it what the planet is worth? It's time they understood there are things that cannnot be bought at all.

Abuse of power. That is why the little guy needs to stand shoulder to should to put a stop to this. We don't have the money to fight this, but we have the numbers.
