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.

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