What happened?

Starting in 1978, the Supreme Court began to allow corporate money to influence politics. Since then, average Americans have seen their wages stagnate and their share of taxes rise significantly, while corporations have seen their tax burden shrink and the top 1% have literally tripled their income. There has been a massive redistribution of wealth in this country. And it’s going straight to the top. Yet corporate wealth and corporate power continues to grow unabated as the Supreme Court ruled in 2010 in Citizens United v. FEC that corporations can now spend unlimited money in politics.

It’s also worth noting that the quality of politicians has deteriorated since this time due to successful elections being more to do with fellating the biggest donors than possessing the greatest political savvy.
