Making government work for everyone as opposed to blowing it up comes to mind.
Today at the Missouri Ethics Commission for Chris Koster’s (D) 2016 gubernatorial campaign:
C031159 08/30/2016 KOSTER FOR MISSOURI UAW V CAP 8000 East Jefferson Ave Detroit MI 48214 8/29/2016 $200,000.00
Okay, that’s from working people. A candidate’s opposition to “right to get paid less” will do that.
But wait, there’s more:
C031159 08/30/2016 KOSTER FOR MISSOURI John McDonnell 1 Serendipity Ln Saint Louis MO 63131 None Retired 8/30/2016 $100,000.00
