We are in the middle of a battle for power. On one side, we have the money of corporate polluters, and their front groups like the US Chamber of Commerce, and on the other side we have the people power of everyday Americans who want their elected leaders to represent their constituents instead of their donors. In 2010, those big polluters launched one heck of a battle cry with $500 million in lobbying and attack ads flooding our political process.
