How do you folks feel these shenanigans?
What would be the point of firing congress if they just go work for big pharma and other lobby groupies once we vote them out? System itself needs changes.
Problem is these people are so incredibly insulated it’s nearly impossible to hurt them legally or financially, seems the people who can hurt politicians most are the lobby groups as they control who gets funding, and as we have seen on this vid they can back opponents to intentionally blackmail politicians to do what they desire. If politicians don’t cave, they can simply put their money behind someone who will do what they/big pharma wants. The fact is they are more parasitic to the functioning of our economy than anything I can think of.
So, still want to talk about welfare, food stamps and those greedy poor people who keep wanting free shit? How about the already wealthy politicians selling us out for their greed? Where’s the uproar?
