Reich Stuff

Remember all the socialists up in arms over the Obama campaign's decision to go back on his pledge to stay in the public financing system. Remember their angst over the nearly billion dollars his campaign raised and all the questions over the source of that flow? No? That's right - because there was little concern.

America is poised for a political 'perfect storm': An unprecedented concentration of income and wealth at the top, a record amount of secret money flooding our democracy, and a public in the aftershock of the great recession becoming increasingly angry and cynical about government.

Now, though, as rebellion is in the air against the excesses of the radical left, suddenly people like Robert Reich are alarmed by the flow of funds.
