Streaming Video - 2007

This program with Bill Moyers examines what many people consider to be the scandal of American democracy-the influence of money on our political system. The 1992 Presidential election sent a strong signal: by voting for Bill Clinton or Ross Perot, both of whom ran on reform platforms, voters registered their disgust with the way laws are made, influence is bought, and an elite class of politicians control the system. This 1994 program examines the roles that financial contributions, corporate influence, and special interests played at the start of the Clinton administration, as well as in national, state, and even local political contests across the country. Issues raised in the program include: Has the "business" of politics in Washington changed since the election? What is the relationship between the Clinton White House and Big Business? What's the Clinton record on the effects of money, power, and privilege on policy? Is campaign financing reform for real?How can citizens effect change in the system at the grassroots level?
