ERIC ZUESSE: Increased spending on the military-industrial complex
(which is incontestably the most corrupt portion of the U.S. federal
government) is so extremely important to
47% of America’s voters, according to this poll. Those 47% are like a
huge cheering section for those ten corporate stocks: they’re willing to
shut down the federal government if the taxpayer-money going to those
ten firms isn’t increased.
