Corporate America halts political donations after Capitol siege

Businesses in the US are rethinking political contributions in the wake of the deadly Capitol siege by President Trump’s supporters. Citigroup confirmed that it is pausing all political donations for the first three months of the year. Marriott said it is stopping donations to the 147 Republicans who opposed certifying Biden’s win. JPMorgan paused contributions for both Republicans and Democrats.

Why don’t they go a step further and halt donations to politicians forever? The sooner we get their money out of politics the sooner politicians start to govern for the people instead of for their corporate puppet masters.

There should be ZERO money for these corrupt politicians. I'd get rid of all of them start fresh with term limits. How do so many have 10's of millions of dollars on 175k a year job 🤔

Nowhere in our constitution are "rights" assigned to corporations... Especially not "global corporations" that hold ZERO allegiance to the US government. SCOTUS fabricated the right to donate unlimited amounts of money for political campaigns. The solution is to restrict campaign donations to registered voters in the district of the candidate only and limit them to $5k per race. That would eliminate the graft.

All special interests, including lobbying, should be gotten rid of. Politicians represent the views and principles of the people, not its corporations. Now, the script is oppositional to the founders intentions and we still appease the corrupt filth in congress. Reform needs to come soon before it comes in the form of violence, just as the founders intended. Give me liberty or give me death.

It's a siege now? So what's the media calling all the protests that happened in DC back in the 60's? Extinction Level Events?

I have a crazy idea. Why don't we make a list of things that both parties approve of and actually get those passed. Things like: Term limits No corporate donations Limit political donations per person New government transparency requirements Any suggestions?

Why don't we get money out of politics? Because then the donor class wouldn't have as much influence on our representatives--and we 𝘤'𝘯'𝘵 have that' We're witnessing the explicit 𝙥𝙪𝙣𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩 of politicians by corporate America for refusing to 'ow a line; it's not even a slip of the mask--they just no 'onger feel it's necessary to wear one at this point. They halted contributions to dissenting Republicans 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙖 𝙨𝙚𝙩 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙙 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚 because those Republicans were 𝘴𝘶𝘱'𝘰𝘴𝘦𝘥 to maintain the narrative that's most beneficial to a) their qua'terlies and b) the entities to whom they're beholden (likely for a multitude of disturbing rea'ons that are second only to money). They're telling them 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘧𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘴--and they're doi"g it in front of all of us, publicly, 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙚𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩-- "𝑨𝒍𝒍 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒉𝒂'𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒅𝒐 𝒊𝒔 "𝒆𝒕 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒈𝒓𝒂𝒎--𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒂𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒆𝒏 '𝒑 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒇𝒍𝒚 𝒓𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕!--𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒘𝒆'𝒍𝒍 𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒖𝒎𝒆 𝒅𝒐𝒏𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔." And the useful idiots cheer like the braying donkeys they've proven themselves to be.

Okay, now it is clear Corporate America is going to engineer the government by not backing those they disagree with.. Is this not a declaration that they'll pay major money to BUY OUR GOVERNMENT? Political contributions MUST be only private. But our bought &paid politicians would never agree to cut off their masters. It's time for GRIP!!! "Get Rid of Incumbent Politicians". For the next 10 years NEVER vote for, or re-elect, any one of them. When they see they're not keeping their jobs, maybe they'll lusten to us.

I can see why, the last thing people from corporations want is to be seen as the supporter of seemingly undemocratic leaders, it would put them in a unwanted spotlight.

I hope that law suit signed by at least 126 members of congress to have the election tossed is what's used by corporations to remove donations and cancel any future donations but I am not holding my breath on this one.donat
