Yes, "there's class warfare, all right," warns Warren Buffett. "But it's my class, the rich class, that's making war, and we're winning." Yes, the rich are making war against us. Full Story

I have long complained that only the rich are running for office so that is all we have to chose from. And they don't have a clue and most don't have a care about the rest of us.
Look at what Kasich did--hired a bunch of his monied pals at big money to make them richer.
And he wants to sell Ohio piece by piece.
With them in control, we can't even vote that they have limited funds to run for office--so that the party, the rich and the famous can't put their man/woman in.
And that is what we need. A small limited fund allowed for campaigns so that more people understanding the needs of the country can have a chance to get into office.

No more big campaign funds available. All have equal small war chest as they call it

This happened in France once. Didn't end well for the rich.
