Re 'Corporations Hide Election Spending From the Public Eye'

Here in California, political TV ads have some discloser at the end of promo. When you see the American National Chamber of Commerce or the National Manufacture Association appear, you know automatically that they are attacking the environment, or something that would benefit ordinary people. I am willing to bet that the corporations and the bank mentioned here are members of one of these associations. Wall Street, the investment banks and multinational corporations own almost all of our representatives in Congress. I won't say they own everyone, on the off-chance that some of them actually attempt to serve the people. When a politician wants to cut taxes for the wealthy, you know he is the lowest form of life on earth. As for cutting taxes for ordinary people, you have to have a job before you can pay any taxes. There are countless associations or think tanks that exist to screw ordinary people and our country. The only way you can counter them is to know the issues, and look pass the trash on TV or some other media outlet. I am sure you are nice people, but this is the real world today.
