Years ago some Japanese company was caught paying bribes to US Congressmen (between $10,000 and $50,000) The Japanese were astonished at how cheap it was to buy influence in Washington. It cost millions to do the same thing in Tokyo.

There's nothing but a bunch of nickle and dime hos on Capital Hill.

It is unbelievable how corrupt our government is. Anyone with enough money can bribe--I mean provide a campaign contribution---to a Congressman had have them insert a line into the tax code that benefits them personally. It is utterly, completely, corrupt.

What is even more amazing are the Tea Baggers who have been so brain washed by their corporate overloads that they argue the system is working fine and nothing needs to be changed.
