Can’t buy us

The biggest winner in this week’s election was American democracy, which clearly cannot be bought. Although we are grateful that the Citizens United ruling provided an additional stimulus to our nation’s economy, it just might be time to rethink the concept of unlimited campaign contributions to super PACs by corporations and wealthy donors.
