Today, our friends Pay 2 Play launched a new campaign, Money in Politics A to Z . Over the course of a month, a new letter will be released each day that corresponds to an issue in which big money in politics directly relates to. We found a few letters that relate to our own initiatives, which we will launch later next month.
To start, we are focusing on the letter “A” for Agriculture, as in during 2013-4 the agribusiness industry spent $76.8 million in lobbying and $64.1 million in contributions to protect a status quo that includes billions in unneeded insurance subsidies for a very profitable industry, widespread use of potentially unhealthy pesticides and unregulated, unsustainable farming practices.
