Press [1] for Democracy (P1FD) is a Coffee Party Radio show that discusses the political issues of the day in a civil, fact-based, and transpartisan manner.  Transpartisan is quite different from bi- or non-partisan in the we encourage callers to be passionate about their positions, but also that they listen and respond to those with differing points of view repsectfully and with a true desire to find common ground on which solutions can be built.  

Tonight on P1FD . . .

Thanks for the Handouts America! Best Regards from the 1%.

Many politicians claim that the vast majority of subsidies are going to the entrepreneurs, who are often cited as the ‘job creators’. However, according to a study just released by taxpayer watchdog group Good Jobs First, the lion’s share of subsidy dollars are actually given to established, highly profitable corporations -- a.k.a. Big Donors. In fact, 75% of all state and local subsidies are going to just 965 major companies. At the same time, these One-Percenters are staging hostile takeovers of the ruling parties, demanding a bigger voice in the crafting of policies and strategies. 

So here’s our question to SCOTUS: How CAN’T you see this as the quid pro quo behavior you said was necessary to prove money’s corrupting influence on government? This denial of fact has already led to the abhorrent Citizens United decision; and it may well be the basis for a calamitous outcome in McCutcheon v. FEC. When are we, The People going to demand justice?
