Quote of the day -- on money in our politics and government

“People do not fully appreciate the degree to which big money, campaign contributions and lobbying and PACs and corporate media play in whether or not serious legislation is discussed and passed,” Sen. Bernie Sanders told “Despite the fact that we have a collapsing middle class, more people living in poverty than at any time during our history, and the gap between the very, very rich and everyone else growing wider, it is very hard for me to imagine significant legislation being passed that Wall Street and the big money interests don’t want.” 

--Sen. Bernie Sanders, Indep., Vermont
