This is Not Democracy

The billionaire Koch brothers plan to spend $889 million in the 2016 elections, twice what their network spent in 2012, according to the reports published on Monday. “In the last presidential election, Obama and Romney raised about $1 billion each. The Koch brothers, the second wealthiest family in America, now say they will raise nearly $1 billion for the 2016 elections. When one family can raise as much as an entire party, the system is broken. This is oligarchy, not democracy,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders. “We must overturn Citizens United,” added Sanders, who last week filed a constitutional amendment to undo the 2010 Supreme Court ruling that struck down laws limiting how much corporations and wealthy individuals may invest in campaigns.
