White House Petition: Make Lawmakers Wear Logos Of Financial Backers On Clothing, Like In NASCAR
From the depths of the White House's "We the People" petition website comes this cause created on Tuesday, hoping to force congressional lawmakers to prominently display their financial backers and monetary support from various lobbies.

Since most politicians' campaigns are largely funded by wealthy companies and individuals, it would give voters a better sense of who the candidate they are voting for is actually representing if the company's logo, or individual's name, was prominently displayed upon the candidate's clothing at all public appearances and campaign events. Once elected, the candidate would be required to continue to wear those "sponsor's" [sic] names during all official duties and visits to constituents. The size of a logo or name would vary with the size of a donation. For example, a $1 million dollar contribution would warrant a patch of about 4" by 8" on the chest, while a free meal from a lobbyist would be represented by a quarter-sized button. Individual donations under $1000 are exempt.

Wonderful idea. Not only that, ask them to wear live cameras during their service to the public of the United States.

let's turn cspan into some sort of reality tv show. Congress is certainly dysfunctional enough to keep things interesting. The whole thing is just lacking the proper editing and producing

Fuck that, why not just remove them from office and have their spots replaced with the CEO's sponsoring them. Or one better, why not dissolve congress altogether and just let the businesses make the laws, after all, corporations are people, and only rich people get a say in our political process.

Ridiculous. If a person can't take 3 minutes to check out what their Rep is doing and needs a "color-coded" guide to be informed, you deserve the nanny state you get.

Sure, lets turn it into a reality show. After all, it's not your life going forward or that of your children we're talking about. It's TV entertainment! Hell, put up drone strikes against citizens on TV too! I bet some of you would "cheer" if it provided a few minutes of distractions from the black hole you're heading to with ever-increasing speed.

Idiots, the whole lot that signs that petition.
