To the editor:
At several recent “town hall” meetings held by Oregon Congressional Rep. Greg Walden, “problem telemarketers” were cited in every meeting as one of the biggest problems the citizens currently deal with. I would agree as we get 5-10 telemarketer calls every day.
But don’t expect Greg Walden to do anything about it even though he could if he wanted to. Why? Because he is getting money from the telemarketers and politicians always put money over their constituents’ needs and wants.
In fact most everything in politics nowadays is driven by money—specifically, campaign contributions.
And don’t believe those campaign finance statements the politicians give us. There are numerous ways to funnel money to the politicians and much of it is not reported to the public.
