PRICELESS documentary

PRICELESS, a documentary soon to be released on national public television, is a hard-hitting and entertaining look at how corporations, lobbyists and PACs shape policy in Washington DC with campaign cash, especially since Citizens United.  It also explores a road-tested way to reduce influence peddling, restore representation to we-the-people, and make smarter policy that actually benefits average citizens. Blunt language from lobbyists, lawmakers, lobbyists and activists.  Savvy school kids provide comic relief.  View the trailers, learn more, and find air dates at <http://www.pricelessmovie.org>. For further scenes make sure to check out <http://www.pricelessmovie.org/featured-video>. Twitter:  https://twitter.com/#!/habitatmedia.  Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Priceless/238053012942931. 25455
