158 families

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

$176 million.

That's the amount of money 158 families—and the companies they own or control—have already contributed to Republican and Democratic presidential candidates.1 $176 millionthat's half of the total funds contributed thus far in the 2016 presidential race.2

Who are these people and why are they buying our democracy?

I tackle those big questions and more in three minutes in The Investments of the 158, my latest video with MoveOn. Please watch it and share it now.
