These kind of huge bribes are bad news for working Americans, because we don’t donate this kind of money and the people who do expect something in exchange.
You can bet that when campaign fundraisers are focused on besting their previous records they’re not doing so by rejecting money form unsavory allies. They do it by selling us out and putting the interest of the donors ahead of the greater good.
The fact that both major parties engage in this conduct is further evidence that neither champions the interest of American wage-earners. These political machines exist only to serve themselves. This is not about Obama or the Democracts. This is not about Republicans. This is about a political system that has placed democacy in a death spiral.
