Bill Moyers: "The greatest challenge we face in America today is to stop the buying and selling of our politicians and political process by corporations and the rich. You may have seen the story [last] week: For the first time ever the Vatican rented out the Sistine Chapel to a corporation — Porsche — for guests who paid $8,000 a head to attend a concert there. For the first time a corporate donor determined who could be invited to that sacred place. That’s what has happened to democracy. Either we reverse 'Citizens United' and insist democracy is about equal representation, or we might as well close up shop."
In a live chat with viewers, Bill said that reaching out to fellow citizens and neighbors is an essential step in transforming our broken democracy.
