The oligarchs are meeting this weekend to plot how they’re going to buy the elections this year

First, Mitt Romney will be hosting a three-day retreat in Utah over the weekend with about 600 hundreds of his biggest fundraisers. Romney is coming off a good fundraising month in May where his camp outraised the Obama camp $78 million to $60 million. But the real plans to buy the election are being made in California – not Utah. In San Diego this weekend, the Koch brothers are hosing their annual political convention aimed at raising nearly a half billion dollars this election to elect corporate Republicans and defeat Progressives.

That means – between now and November – over a billion dollars in negative ads attacking President Obama and Progressives with flood the airwaves – making corporate media outlets very rich, and poisoning public debate across America. We’re entering a whole new era in American politics thanks to the Supreme Court.

Can Democrats Set Out a New Path?

Democrats must embrace a pro-government platform, not run away from it.

Those were the sentiments of Senator Chuck Schumer today, in a speech given at the National Press Club. Talking about the reasons for Democrats’ losses on Election Day, Schumer said that those losses were proof that the American people and middle-class want a government that will work more effectively for them.
