The Occupy DC protest of Mitt Romney's large dollar fundraiser last week provided a stark background for those who believe money in politics is a problem in our democracy. This video features one member of Occupy DC at that event and his thoughts on this issue.

I think there are a lot of different issues that are important, but they're all related to money in politics. They're all related to the fact that our government doesn't represent the interests of the people as much as they should, in some cases at all, they represent the interests of the people who have power and money already.
