Jeff Reeves’s Strength in Numbers: Here’s how big business is taking charge of controversial issues Congress avoids

It is reprehensible to view a school shooting or a hate crime in context of how you can make a quick buck. But equally wretched is the current state of politics in America, where Congress can’t do anything about the nation’s never-ending string of mass shootings or our massive federal debt or the dysfunctional state of U.S. health care or, well, anything important.

Increasingly, consumers are turning to Big Business with demands to enact change.
