Our politicians know where their funds are coming from.|
The contributions from corporations(and those associated with corporations) outweigh those of individuals. See the article.
Maybe the solution is to have a different kind of corporation, a political organization that can overpower corporate political interests.
Maybe the solution is to limit the powers of corporate persons.
Eitherway, the imbalance must be addressed.
According to Federal Election Commission figures compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, Goldman Sachs' political action committee and individual contributors who listed the company as their employer donated $994,795 during 2007 and 2008 to Obama's presidential campaign, the second-highest contribution from a company PAC and company employees.
