The Supreme Court decision to lift the limit by wealthy persons on campaign contributions to candidates across the nation undermines fairness and equality.

If you believe in trickle down economics, Republicans are your “go-to” party. If you believe in sustainable economics, there is no party clearly championing that. If you want a champion for equal opportunity, well, that is what President Obama talks about.
The Ryan Republican budget is a reflection of trickle down. The capitalist economic model has reached entropy and isn’t working for most people. Needed is new thinking and a new way forward.
