The New Stimulus Package

We often hear how entertainment and satire are a great way to get our citizenry involved in the political process. Well, the Daily Show on Thursday was trying to get people thinking about a big issue in this election cycle — money in politics. John Oliver did a special about all the money in politics, suggesting that it could essentially be a private sector stimulus package. People in the media, actors, post production, marketing, and political commentators will have work to do. He ended by satirically suggesting we have elections every year. Of course, the actual stimulus package was foolish for exactly the same reason!
