Obama: Mandatory Voting Potentially "Transformative" And "Would Counteract Money More Than Anything"

President Obama speaks at the City Club of Cleveland.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: In Australia and some other countries there is mandatory voting. It would be transformative if everybody voted. That would counteract money more than anything. If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political landscape, because the people who tend not to vote are young, they are lower income, they are skewed more heavily toward immigrant and minorrity groups, and often they are the folks scratching and climbing to get into the middle class.
