They are all bought off to some degree or another. There is no such thing as spineless Democrats, they back down because their Donors tell them to. If we had a neutral FBI that wanted to do their job they could set up a sting and bust everyone of the politicians.

Washington is nothing but one big Quid Pro Quo.

When Trump and the Republicans start passing the heartless bills stripping the social safety net, killing public education, killing Obamacare, we need to be reminding the Trump supporters who is doing this to them! If we can start taking away the Republican base and motivating ours to stand up and fight we can accomplish our goals.

If we do this right we can take it all back, except this time we need to put in politicians prepared to eliminate campaign contributions, Super PACs, Dark Money, and the Revolving Door. We need Publicly Funded Elections!

They need to be prepared to bust up the banking and media oligarchies and require truth in news. Advertising at the networks must be kept separate from the news departments.
