Society & Culture
In this episode, I rant about how the candidates you elect are bought and paid for by corporate lobbyists who work to push the agenda of their clients.
The results of Citizens United vs. The Federal Elections Commission gave corporations the right to spend as much money as they want on "electioneering communications." These corporations (and labor unions) spend millions each year to influence you and politicians. They convince you on who to vote for, and they convince the elected officials to vote for policies that favor their bottom line. Many of these corporations own shares in the news outlets you rely on for the information you vote on. There is also a strong correlation between the amount a corporation spends on lobbying and the profits they make. Still think your vote really matters?
