There needs to be a change in the way candidates get money to run for office. I heard this on Npr tonight on the way home. One of the leaked emails was about how Coke paid paid money to Clinton campaign. Hillary was for the tax on soda in Philadelphia. A representative of Coke emailed Clinton and pretty much made it clear that they expected her to vote in their favor. If these companies pay lots of money why would they listen to their constituents.

2. Agreed

This is important for democracy. It is good to know that Hillary was not swayed.
