MONEY CHANGES EVERYTHING: Do you think money corrupts our politics?

We hate it when people whine about things, but don’t do anything to actually solve the problem, right MAMAS? Well, Dylan Ratigan is on mission to get money out of politics (#getmoneyout) and he’s using his tv megaphone to do it.  So, we’re wondering if it’s just the price of doing business in Washington or if the process can actually be changed?

Dylan has worked with lobbyist and the show’s regular straight-talker, Jimmy Williams, to create a Constitutional Amendment that says:

“No person, corporation or business entity of any type, domestic or foreign, shall be allowed to contribute money, directly or indirectly, to any candidate for Federal office or to contribute money on behalf of or opposed to any type of campaign for Federal office. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, campaign contributions to candidates for Federal office shall not constitute speech of any kind as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution or any amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Congress shall set forth a federal holiday for the purposes of voting for candidates for Federal office.”

Whatcha think MAMAS?! If you likey, then click here to sign the petition and politely encourage our politicians to stop pandering to special interests and start working for the best interests of their constituents.

MOMism:  ”Money is the mother’s milk of politics.”  Well, if that’s the case…these MAMAs think it’s time to ween our politicians!  What’s your opinion MAMAS???
