America's Savings Shepard Fairey Print Release

Prints all lined up for Shep to sign
Shepard Fairey once again takes on cash in politics with his next release, America's Savings. He does make a very good point. Laws are being written to favor those that buy the ear of our "lawmakers" and that is not what this country was founded on or stands for.
America’s Savings is the next in my series of images about the need to overhaul the American campaign finance system. End corruption, get money out of politics, return to democracy – these are calls to action that I will continue to push and champion in order to limit the influence of corporations and special interests in our political process. Our system allows influential corporations and special interests to use their money and influence to put profits ahead of the general well-being of the populace. Sometimes a relatively small investment in campaign contributions or lobbyists by a corporation can result in laws that ignore the needs of the people in favor of business interests. If you like this print, good, that means that you’ll contribute to our efforts to fix our broken system. Rootstrikers and Represent.US are two organizations fighting for campaign finance reform and profits from this print will go to both of them to help end the legal bribery of politicians.
– Shepard
