It is election time. So they say something that sounds nice to voters. Nothing will change. Even if they put up a bill, it will be changes so much that it will be law to do what they are doing.
This is great, as they can always blame the other party. Both parties are guilty here.
Let's be honest,the political game is lost to the companies for a long time now. They are able to fool enough of the people all of the time.
I mean, even Sanders said that even if he got elected it might already be to late.
There is a reason for separation between church and state. That is that a certain group might get influence over a majority that might think differently and only that groups interest will be looked at and not that of all. The same must happen with corporations. There must be a separation between business and state (and business and church, but that was covered 2000 years ago). Only then will there be a governement for the people by the people.
Until then: I do welcome my old business overlords.
