Corporate money has 'poisoned' both local and national politics for decades.
This bill WILL fail in the state house because too much is "at stake" for the current incumbants in the State legislature. Until we can break the chain of "paid-for-bribes" via lobbyists to our elected officials they are NOT working or the majority of their constituents. They are on these corporation's payroll. It's time to outlaw lobbying across the board, clean up politics & get our ELECTED officials back to work for the little people.
