Because they just stripped election funding from government control.
They gave more power to Corporations and Unions.
Corporations and Unions are made out of people.
This is more power to the people. And that is a good thing.
Corporations are run by a very small, often rich, elite group of people that are also responsible for cutting major deals in saving THEIR particular
company money in taxes, benefits, worker's comp., etc. You know -- save on the things that the government demands companies pay. The same types of
things that we as INDIVIDUALS are required to pay.
So now you have a situation where companies can give any amount of money to candidates in order to get them elected. Said candidate will then be in a
"bribe" type situation and need to "re-pay" said contributions once elected.
Notice how nowhere in any of those negotiations are WE -- the common worker that actually makes the company the money to fund said candidate?
Further, said company will not be asking the workers -- again, this is YOU and ME -- whom to support. You will therefore be contributing passively to
supporting a candidate you may not want elected simply by still working for that company. The more money you make for the company the more money they
have to support said candidate.
Have you picked up on the blatant conflict of interest problem yet? Further, all a candidate will need to do to win an election is to go to bed with
the largest companies with the deepest pockets. More politicians buying elections. How is that better for the Union? How does that encourage
