Legalized Corruption

Congress' legalized corruption by Walter E. Williams

A far better explanation for the billions going to the campaign coffers of Washington politicians and lobbyist lies in the awesome government power and control over business, property, employment and other areas of our lives. Having such power, Washington politicians are in the position to grant favors and commit acts that if committed by a private person would land him in jail.

We will only begin to correct this mess the country is in when we hold congress to the same standards and laws that you and I must obey. Republicans, Democrats, doesn't matter. For our present congress we can have an prisoner admitting station right down the hall so we can watch on CSPAN as they are led away from their seats and processed.
