I just downloaded the GREENHOUSE app for Chrome and it is great. Talk about easy access to highly illuminating data. Well done! I’d encourage everyone to take a look at the app. It is very light and couldn’t be easier to use.

As the creator Nick Rubin says, – Some are Red. Some are Blue. All are GREEN. That couldn’t be more true.

It should be unlawful to take these contributions. It is like a bribe. They want something in return. No contributions for someone on a Government payroll.

Until government decides to stop regulating and taxing corporations, I have no issue with them donating to politicians. The right to assemble and the petition our government is a fundamental right.

I use OpenCongress. org and just follow the money trail. It's pretty disgusting that we vote these jokers in, and then they line their pockets with some corporation's, or union's money....so they can pass bills to raise our taxes to give their buddies a tax break, if not worse.
