and if you're not into keeping up with Supreme Court cases,
you might have missed an important event a few weeks ago in Washington that will effect all of our lives.
The Supreme Court heard arguments on a case, Friedrichs v California Teachers.
Why should you care?
It's generally accepted that the income inequality in this country is at a historically bad point.
The top 1% of the American population holds more wealth than the entire bottom 90%.
Add to that the Supreme Court decision in the Citizens United case that basically said placing spending limits on campaign financing is illegal.
This opened the door to the top 1% to spend, and spend, and spend.....and in so doing, control the political process for their benefit.
