Nicholas D. Kristof: Why Pay Congress?

By Remy Benoit

At the New York Times Why Pay Congress?

Each vote in a democracy is supposed to be equal; that is unless you have millions and millions to spend to make your vote, your policies, your wants more important than the American people-even when it comes to toxicity. From John Alyosius Farrell at Reader Supported News Koch's Web of Influence. So, who is lobbying for your interests, well, like a legal and doable mortgage, or maybe even a job? Who are our soldiers defending; the American people or corporations? We have some real thinking to do and real action to take.
