    Couldn’t have the sad and sorry spectacle of US air travel without the full support of the Democratic Party and cartel has no better shameless shill than “Congressman” Rick Larsen. In just one cycle he raised $100k from cartel and related interests.
    That’s why Airlines For America praised him so effusively in 2013-he is one of them. 32 out of 33 dollars he raises comes from big money-almost none of the money $29k out of a million comes from ordinary people.

    Another Non-Story..Compared with the 10s of Millions of Dollars Republicans get from the NRA..This is peanuts. He's also close to The Main Boeing Plant, so needs some support from Airlines to stop all the orders flooding to Airbus. Also I would not call $100K "In the pockets" that's less than a certain President spends on a hookers NDAs.

    Guy raised $29k from non big money contributors. Probably very little of that small sliver of the million he raised was from his own constituents. Guy hasn’t said boo as air travel got worse every day for a decade. These House members are owned and operated by big money as evidenced by their contributors and who they owe their allegiance to. Government for them and their staff is just a waystation to a big money lobbyist or corporate job. Which is why R&D both mean 0 for the ordinary Jane and Joe.
