Has anyone else seen this? What are your thoughts? I for one, think it's a great idea to get money out of politics. When you have people in power who are being payed off (bribed) by corporations and special interest groups, it makes for corrupt politics. This is obvious. I think we need politics to go back to being public service, not self service, or service to the highest bidder.
See Dylan Ratigan's rant which put some momentum behind this movement: Dylan Ratigan (rightfully) loses it on air - YouTube
If you don't know who Dylan Ratigan is, he used to be on CNBC and was a co-creator of the show Fast Money
, which is still on the air (Just before Cramer's Mad Money
). He now works for MSNBC, and is one
of the leaders of this movement.

"Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."
