How is it that politicians are still using recording artists' music without permission?

Saying "Hey, can I please use your song?" just seems like the right thing to do, if not legally correct. But, these are politicians we are talking about here.

A.V. Club, Dropkick Murphys, who are pro-workers’ rights, have been at odds with Governor Walker since 2011, when he introduced a bill that aimed to limit the collective bargaining rights of unions.
