"The most serious dysfunction in American democracy is now in the legislative branch, in Congress, because they spend most of their time begging rich people and special interests for money. American democracy has been hacked; big sources of special interest money are able to prevent the passage of almost any meaningful reform in the public interest, it really pains me to say.
