Political Contributions – Corporate vs Labor 15 to 1

Contributions Corporate vs LaborBusiness interests dominate, with an overall advantage over organized labor of about 15-to-1.

“We can either have democracy in this country
or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few,
but we can’t have both.”
–Louis Brandeis, U.S. Supreme Court Justice (1856-1941)
