Favoring the donor’s agenda

They (the senators) did not need to go on record to have the government veto the bill passed to protect where money comes from to ensure the senators and other elected people favor the donor’s agenda.

It was a great ploy - won’t get an academy award but a very good performance.

There should be a law passed by U.S. constituents that only money from their district be allowed to elect. The person running money from out of state does not favor us. And those who are always re-elected have a war chest that favors them, ie: no valued competitor can win.

The will come up with a bill that will always favor the incumbent. They will hide money as they do now. They are for themselves. Do not donate money to these people, they get plenty from outside their district and even (I bet) out of state.
