…just everything. Read excerpts of testimony submitted to a special hearing today on the constitutionality of campaign finance reform.

(Plus many of the issues businesses care passionately about don’t raise the temperature of the average joe.) Result: the only voice speaking is the one with the money, and it’s mighty powerful.
