KOCH BROTHERS TO SPEND $1BILLION IN 2016 ELECTIONS

moneypoliticsThe Koch brothers have pledge to spend approximately $1 billion dollars in the 2016 elections, which is a sad sign of how money is ruining politics and the democratic system of this country. Citizens United ruling allowing large sums of money from donors to support campaigns is a terrible decision the Supreme has made because it is the richest people in society interests and concern is more of a priority for lawmakers. Furthermore, last spring the Supreme Court said it was unconstitutional to limit the amount of money contributed to campaigns, as result the 2014 midterm elections was won by the GOP who outspent Democrats in the primaries and general elections; the saying that money is the root of all evil is evident in politics.
