Quote of the Day

Monika Bauerlein and Jeffery Clara, writing for Mother Jones:

The 1 percent have always had outsize influence, but not since the robber-baron era have they been able to throw their weight around so exuberantly. Our lawmakers might as well wear NASCAR-type logos signaling their corporate sponsors. And you can kiss judicial propriety goodbye when Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia dine with the law firm challenging Obamacare on the very day the Supreme Court decides to take the case.

And yet again I ask: America’s supposed to be the greatest country in the world? Okay.

Some of the comments after the article are spot-on. Great stuff.
