Exposed: The insidious cancer at the core of democracy that could take down Biden

Case in point: Oil industry executives testified before Congress this week, suffering a barrage of questions, including particularly intense ones from Reps. Ro Khanna, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Katie Porter.The CEOs exhibited the same sort of arrogant insolence Mark Zuckerberg displayed in July of last year when he was hauled before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law. It was, basically, a smug, “Screw you, Congressperson.”Why were the representatives of Big Oil and Big Tech unafraid of the power of Congress?Because, at the end of the day, they own that power. The Supreme Court gave it to them with their poisonous Citizens United decision.
