    Only difference is that their dem candidates still lose. Just goes to prove that money can't put dogs into office that the people don't want.
    Tom Steyer: $57 million
    Koch brothers: Almost 1 Billion, not including all their involvements with conservative think tanks.

    As usual, you fall flat.
    It seems Russian prostitutes are not the only leaking Donald Trump has witnessed. Sad!

    You should get your information from a reputable source instead of Media Matters. Makes you look uninformed... come to think of it, you are.

    According to Open Secrets:

    Fahr LLC (Tom Steyer): $75,289,659, Ranking - 5

    Bloomberg: $29,805,731, Ranking - 43

    Koch Industries: $28,572,742, Ranking - 48

    You should stop getting your news from pyjama news and Fox. Otherwise, you'd know that the Koch brother are trying to buy the 2016 election. Who needs Media Matters when you got:

    Sure thing. Just find me one single politician anywhere who has said "It is not my duty to represent the children in my district."

    Those fringe elements you listed are no threat. You aren't gonna see north korean tanks down your street any time soon. But here is my point. I couldn't give a **** less if obama was born in kenya. That has no relevance to anything except some antiquated and ethnocentric belief that kenyans aren't to be trusted, even if they have no memory of the place. I couldn't give a **** less if ted cruz is canadian, or arnold is austrian.

    You really have to be paranoid indeed if you think there's any chance the nutjob hermit they made a comedy of could ever win election here, or a staunch russian nationalist. You know who does scare me though? Ted cruz, sarah palin, or any of the uneducated masses holding public office. See, it's plausible enough to happen.

    And you're a mod means i'm not surprised at the litany of stupid comments on this forum
    ..and yet I'll bet that you cal Operation Iraqi Freedom an "invasion". If by your standard, we are all one big family, then our efforts in Iraq were little more than policing up a bad group of our "cousins".

This move is to achieve the opposite of that intent. The only purpose here to is to gerrymander districts so as to be less representative.
    VOTING districts should be determined by who is allowed to VOTE. Drawing voting districts based on anything other than that is the problem. This bill simply fixes that problem. But you don;t like it because the system of counting every Juan, Sahid and Akira that's here illegally benefits your party. So basically all the accusations you're throwing out are utter crap, since hat you're accusing the Reps. of doing is exactly what the Dems. did and the TRUTH is that this is an effort to fix what was done wrong by the DEMS. But you don't care about things like doing what's right, you just want to see your party in power no matter what.

    well since conservatives argue that these masses of illegals are already voting, what's it to them to put one more false check on one more form?

    You know what I mean, minors shouldn't be counted when it comes to voting and electoral vote distributions. Only legal citizens of voting age, it's quite common sense really.

    Re: Supreme Court to hear case that could change how voting districts are drawn

    Guess you can't read links too well can you?? Not sure what "pyjama" (sic) news is, but my source is the nonpartisan Open Secrets web site.

    News Flash !!!!, The money reported by your links was from hundreds of supports, NOT just the Koch's. The correct amount is shown in the link from Open Secrets.

    From your link:

    The group which is supported by hundreds of wealthy donors on the right, along with the Kochs...
    It's really funny how the Kochs have become like Pavlov's dog to you lefties.
