60 Minutes: Washington’s Legalized Bribery
Posted by Larry Doyle on October 22, 2013 9:33 AM |
The release this morning of September’s employment report indicates that our economy continues to limp along like a wounded dog.
But while many in our nation seriously wonder how they will make ends meet, there is one group in our nation that has developed a business plan for which most companies would be vilified — if not prosecuted — but which for them their cup overflows.
Just who are these visionaries that have developed a secret sauce that fills their coffers with booty and elevates the individuals to almost untouchable status? Who are they? Our politicians in Washington who are engaged in what can only be defined as legalized bribery.
For those who missed the expose on what looks and feels very much like a scandalous scheme of payola, let’s navigate and watch a 13-minute 60 Minutes must-view segment. (You will likely want to take a shower after watching this.)
Let’s dispense with the niceties and platitudes. Our nation is crumbling under this corrosive and corruptible racketeering behavior. Our nation needs serious campaign finance reform and term limits like never before.
