This is why I hate American Politics

$63 million has been spent on the Wisconsin recall election.

The 2012 Presidential Election is going to cost approximately $6 billion.

Even in 2010, a non-presidential election year, $3.6 billion was spent on all federal elections.

In American Politics, there are no financially responsible politicians.

  1. To put the Wisconsin number in perspective: The cuts that Walker proposed that started the whole recall process only saved the state $30 million for that fiscal year. So the contributions to Walker alone would cover the cuts, and then some. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Walker_%28politician%29#2011_budget_repair_bill_and_protests

  2. corporations spend millions and millions of dollars on elections so they dont have to pay taxes – i just scratch my head.
