BUYING THE VOTES WITH CASH

The Miami Herald has been running series of investigative reports this week on for-profit colleges.  Today’s article dealt with how the colleges buy influence in Tallahassee and Washington by making large campaign contributions.  Thank you Supreme Court for Citizens United.  Here’s how the for-profit college industry might respond to the Herald’s findings.

 

BUYING THE VOTES WITH CASH
(To tune of, “Falling in Love with Love,” by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart)

Buying the votes with cash is how you gain influence.
Buying the votes with cash is knowing the rules.
Voting with just your vote is living a fantasy.
Voting on just one day is only for fools.

We buy the votes and so, we always get what we want.
Call it corruption, call it whatever you please.
You’d buy the votes, you would, if you had the wherewithal.
The world goes ‘round on sleaze.
