with amazing interviews that illustrate what his authoritative book explains. It is basic. Politicians are bought by donors.
The politician listens carefully to his or her corporate sponsor and pretty much ignores the people who elect him.
It has gotten worse since the Citixen's United Decision by the Supreme Court. There is another aspect to it.
Both parties are sought by the big banks, drug companies, oil companies and media empires. For many corporations
lobbying is just a small cost of doing business. If you have not read Matthews' book yet, you are missing the key
to the problem and the sure solution. This is especially vital in our volatile political times.
a professor of political science who cares deeply about the current political world we live in!
this book is definitely worth your time.... buy it and be informed on what's Happening in our political system and why.
