Robert Reich: Only $ 4.2 Billion to Buy This Election?

By Remy Benoit

What if that money had been put into job creation, small business, people?

From Robert Reich at Reader Supported News Only $4.2 Billion to Buy This Election?

When that kind of money is being spent, then someone wants something MAJOR in return, and we need to ask what that something is and if it in any way relates to any of us at the far end of the financial spectrum.

It would have been lovely if the people investing this kind of money had invested it in the care of our Veterans from these forever wars. After all, those Veterans are only our daughters, sons, wives, husbands, aunts, uncles. It comes to mind to ask another question, who is making big money from these wars? These are questions that need to be asked, just like questions that come up from the previous article about who knew what about a potential oil spill and disaster to the Gulf and wetlands, and people, and wildlife, and fish if the rigs blew. If we send our soldiers out to fight for justice abroad, then it leaves us to fight for it at home.
