Tweet #DemDebate questions on political influence of contractors
The next Democratic presidential debate is this Sunday, January 17.
Join us in urging the debate moderator to ask the candidates about the corrosive effect of big money and corporate influence in politics. In particular we want to raise awareness about the influence of the military-industrial complex and the for-profit prison industry on policies that boost their bottom line but don't make the world any safer.
