Day 373:

Hold Corporate Representatives Responsible

 

If a company gives a politician money one time they are taking a gamble, if they give to a politician every year its because they are getting a good return on their investment.

These assholes are not working for us the people, they are working for the large money donations that they receive from big companies.
