As we all know the money in our politics has created such a hurdle that its damn near impossible to get any of our major initiatives done. Until we can get a constitutional amendment passed that accomplishes this, I think we should lay the ground work for this in the media. The public is not aware of how bad it really is and if they kept hearing about it over and over they’d get mad about it and help create change.
I’m proposing there be a recurring weekly segment that focuses on specific instances of bribery of politicians. In the segment you could discuss instances where a person or organization donates money to a politician and in return that politician votes a certain way, or for a certain ear mark. This may sound simplistic but this is one thing the mainstream media never talks about. I think it would go a long way in creating the energy in the public to get money out of politics.
