Remember when we had a government of the people, by the people, and for the people?
An update on the corporate takeover of our government:
An oil lobbyist runs the DOI
A coal lobbyist runs the EPA
A pharma exec runs HHS
A Boeing exec runs DOD
A billionaire Amway heiress runs DoED
A private equity kingpin runs Commerce
A Goldman Sachs exec runs Treasury
A Verizon lawyer runs the FCC
Sep 9, 2013 -“You follow this pro-corporate trend to its logical conclusion, and sooner or later you’ll end up with a Supreme Court that functions as a wholly owned subsidiary of Big Business” – Elizabeth Warren
Corporations took over our government a long time ago. Citizens United was the end of government by the people.
Let's not forget the #GOPTaxScam which allows corporations to have a lower tax rate than some middle class private citizens.
