For the measly sum of $4500, will you do your part in reducing outside influence for congress critters?
Yep. Voting against cost of living increases for members of Congress may sound nice, but doing so only increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open.
This makes campaign finance reform *harder.*
ALL workers deserve cost of living increases, incl min wage workers.
Do you know what's going to be one of the biggest disruptors here very shortly is the fact that the number one occupation in the United States is "driver", and because we're going to have automated driving, trucks, taxis, I will tell you it's going to be a gigantic disruptor moving forward.
