According to the New York Times [CLICK HERE], Super Pacs and other special interest groups have spent over $200,000,000 on media mud-slinging ads for 2012 political campaigns.

POST SCRIPT, suggested by Frank Yetter, former VP at Businesswire, now active in non-profit work in S.E. Asia: "I still like Warren Buffett's idea the best: give every sitting member of Congress six months to come up with a solution to national health care (which would provide the same level of support that Congress receives to every American) or declare them all ineligible for re-election.
I'd like to add to their new job descriptions a requirement to find a solution to the Fiscal Cliff looming for January. Then sit back and watch the fur fly inside the Beltway. The political storm would make Sandy seem like a balmy breeze."
