Big Contributions = Big Payback

Why is this not surprising? In this article in USA Today, Jim Drinkard outlines how big corporate donors to the GOP are getting the rule changes they want. Bigger profits, fewer lawsuits, less regulation.

"Just six months into a new term for President Bush and the Republican-controlled Congress, some of their heaviest donors are scoring victories on the legislative and regulatory fronts.

"From rewrites of the laws governing bankruptcy and class-action lawsuits to relief for oil, timber and tobacco interests, GOP supporters who gave millions of dollars last year are reaping decisions worth billions from a Congress with more Republicans."

How many more clues do the red-staters need that this president and the Republican Party are not in fact on the side of the little guy?
