Corporate Donations and the Taxpayer First Act

Check out the following ProPublica article that describes another case of corporate lobbying and big campaign contributions leading to bipartisan failure to make lives better for Americans. Sadly, politicians on both sides of the aisle have accepted millions of dollars in donations from the Income Tax Preparation Industry and are now poised to make it illegal for the IRS to provide their own online software that could make tax filing free for everyone.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez commented on this topic as well:

When you look to support the progressive cause please take the time to make sure that your support and money go to candidates who work for the people, not the special interests. Seek out good candidates and support them directly – especially those who won’t accept corporate donations. Too many committees and PACs will blindly support incumbents, so be careful.
