This is why I don’t blog anymore

This article leaves out the “debate” about net neutrality, but the core thesis applies. Republicans are not making policy for the good of the country, (not to mention the world at large). They are governing for the rich and lying to everyone else.

Quite simply, Republican politicians need campaign donations from oil companies and other big corporations to win elections. To maintain their power they must keep the cash flowing. That means keeping rich donors happy by cutting corporate taxes and obstructing climate policies. To achieve that, Republican politicians reject scientific evidence and expert opinion, lie to their voters, and rely on right-wing media echo chamber propaganda and tribalism to keep their supporters voting against their own best interests.
