Quote of the day---What have I been saying?





"Whatever issue you may be most concerned about -- climate change, widening inequality, declining real median wages, rising poverty among the young, the soaring costs of healthcare, bailouts for Wall Street, the sprawling military-industrial-congressional complex, the morality brigade that wants to dictate who can marry and whether a woman has control over her body, a government captured by corporations and the wealthy -- nothing can be done until we get big money out of politics and reclaim our democracy. It is the first step to all reform. It's difficult, it's frustrating, it's not sexy -- but it's a necessity."

--Robert Reich,   political economist, professor, author, and political commentator. He served in the administrations of Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter and was Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997.  Quote from his Facebook page today.

I say again, we have to work--heck, fight--to get the big, ugly, corrupting money of the wealthy and corporations our of our electoral and political systems. We have to end "campaign contributions."
