  1. Sadly, it doesn’t matter if the Government by the People Act is enacted. As the article stated:

    “we who are wealthy enough to give money to politicians get special access before, and influence after”

    Call it what it is, graft, and incarcerate politicians and their “donors” for their corruption.

    Make it legally clear that trading money for access/influence, i.e. BRIBERY, is NOT SPEECH but an illegal act. Close the revolving door between the public and private sectors. Do not allow Regulators to have any connection to the objects of regulation in the past or pending 5 year periods. Public campaign financing only to ensure that during their terms political figures are focused on government, not raising campaign funds.
