It’s less about money going to more important shit and more about money being speech and having more money means your speech is louder. And then the influence those who dole out the money have over you.
We need publicly funded elections, with caps, and we need a Constitutional amendment so that corporations aren’t “people” with “free speech”. And we need to reign in PACs, they shouldn’t be practically anonymous, and any coordination should be prosecuted with heavy jail time.
We’re in a money spiral now. And until something changes, democracy loses.

Before you go...
Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
