As resident of MA, my question of Ms Streisand (whose music I have always enjoyed, as well as her films) is this:
Why do you write large checks to our state politicians? You don't live in MA and should, respectfully, refrain from impacting the daily lives of those who live here.
While I respect everyone's right to free speech, attempting to change the political landscape 3000 miles from your home is plain & simply wrong.
In response to the query, 'where is the 4th estate?' it resides far more in left-leaning politics than right, so I don't understand the problem.
Please Ms Streisand - with all due respect - buy favor with your local politicians and not ours.
Disclaimer: I am neither Democrat (though I voted for Clinton twice) nor Republican - merely a concerned citizen who was angered by a news story that came across the radio today listing elite west coasters and others who are flooding our state with campaign contributions. (Ms. Warren has received to date 63% of her contributions from out of state. (Brown, 40%) Our system is broken when the cost of a political campaign requires candidates to prostitute themselves in exchange for monetary support.
