Actually, I don't really wonder....I'm of the strong belief that we have the best government money can buy.

Plain old economics, Everyone knows where their cheese is. If the tax payer want civil servants to work for them, they must pay them comparable wages. Either you slam the wages of the the CEO's to match the wages of the Congress Critters and the President, or you raise the wages of the Congress Critters and the President.

I guar-on-tee you, when 100's of billions of dollars are moving around, people making 100's of thousands can and will be bought. Further, this is nothing new, the Transcontinental Railroad provided the first scandal (That I recall) and nothing has changed since.

Cheers
