    Of course they do! They are generally really smart and well informed people.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

The Obama Admin has recycled and retained many of the Bush Admin's people on the board of the Federal Reserve. Most of them like Ben Bernanke are former Goldman Sachs people.

    We aren't going to see real political change until big money and lobbyists stop influencing and buying the government.

    I am 100% against the revolving door, big money in politics, and lobbying DC. It leads to corruption.

    Even when I listen to right wing radio, they complain about the "donor class" having too much power in picking an "establishment" candidate like Romney, Jeb, etc. Laura Ingraham specifically says it a lot.

    If you read prior to that, I was challenged on other donors besides the Koch's, so I am not just being a partisan...

    I did not read prior to that.

    Do you have a solution to what you perceive is a problem or do you think more and bigger govt. is the answer? Who pays for it?
    Who said anything about more and bigger government? Campaign finance ain't like it used to be. Just to let you know, that's what we're talking about. We aren't talking about the debt and we certainly aren't talking about the straw man liberal buffoon that you're so proud of yourself for pounding on. So do I have a solution to what I (and millions upon millions of other people) perceive as a very big problem? Yes. It's called campaign finance reform. It's a popular idea in many circles with the exception of the hyper partisan and the cognitive dissonant.

    people who work for the government aren't teat suckers

    those who expect other tax payers to fund them are

    Oh BTW since you want to make personal comments

    I paid more in TAXES each quarter than I made in salary-and I was an SES level equivalency

    Campaign finance reform = government rationed political speech.

    can you smell the stench of the rotting corpse of our federal democratic representative republic?
