Paul Krugman: Lobbyists, Guns and Money

This column by Paul Krugman outlines in detail how monied special interests have hijacked American politics.  Politicians are readily allowing lobbyist to write laws to favor corportate clients, all in return for robust campaign donations.  Republicans have done a masterful job of convincing large segments of the population in the south and elsewhere to vote against their own best interests.  Democrats behave similarly, but rival Republican complicity with stark ineffectiveness.
