Big donors are big winners

A few years ago, The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision allowed large donors, both private and corporate, to influence elections anonymously. These donors used this ability to influence the election of certain members of Congress. Now we see the results as Congress prepares to reward those donors with the largest tax reduction to the wealthy and corporations in our history. Those Congress members who vote for the tax reduction bill do not represent the people, they represent the monied donors and should not be re-elected.
