Jay Leno is using satire to critique the influence of corporate money on political decisions. His joke suggests that large corporations effectively “buy” senators by making significant campaign donations to them, essentially getting them to vote in ways that benefit those corporations.

Leno quips that the new tougher laws will now require such transactions to be formally acknowledged, with corporations needing receipts as proof of purchase when they financially support a senator’s political career in exchange for legislative favors.

The quote aims to draw attention to the perceived corruption of corporate lobbying and donations skewing policy outcomes, while poking fun at the notion of openly trading political power for financial backing.
