Political Income

Here’s an interesting story  about the 158 families who donated more than half of the money towards political campaigns (as of October 2015).

Taking campaign reform seriously ought to be a primary concern for average citizens.  Are there other ways to learn about candidates other than pricey, glitzy, largely uninformative commercials?  Jetting around the country to make inspiring speeches that, once again, don’t convey any depth of thought about critical issues?

Issues like who pays for these expenses (donors) should be important to everyone.  Do they matter to you?
