The Corporate Challenge To Democracy in America: In the second part of our interview with Representative Grijalva, Democratic Perspective asks him about the recent Citizens United Supreme Court decision and its effect on American politics. Despite the corrupting influence of huge amounts of anonymous corporate cash on our campaigns, Rep. Grijalva believes that the American people demand fairness in politics, and that in the long run they’ll overcome any attempt to replace our democracy with money. He points to the Occupy Wall Street Movement as a good example of the push back against corporate dominance of our elections. Rep. Grijalva also discusses the government’s inadequate response to the foreclosure crisis, its failure to craft an energy policy adequate to the challenges of the 21st century, and what he and his progressive colleagues intend to do about it.
