Your Election is being Bought by 47 Billionaires (and they are Buying War, Climate Change)
juancole.com — The Public Interest Group Education Fund and the NGO Demos released a study in early August on the financing of the presidential campaign. They found that nearly 60% of the almost quarter of a billion dollars raised by Super PACs from individuals derived from just 47 people, who gave at least $1 million each (obviously some gave much more). 47 people. That’s democracy? The Super PACs are turning this presidential election into a toxic slamming match beyond anything seen in the recent past. These extremely wealthy and arrogant people are not giving this money for their health. They are expecting something for it.
