Happy Thanksgiving- "Give 'em The Bird"

Globe Backyard TV

Ensuring equal access to power and opportunity, supporting and defending the rights of all people and eliminating discrimination and oppression. Meaning big corporations in bed with the government.

The Pharmaceutical industry enjoys a dominant stranglehold on Capitol Hill. From 1998 through 2013, the industry spent nearly $2.7 billion on lobbying expenses, more than any other industry, and 42 percent more than the next-biggest spender, insurers. In 2012, the industry employed a small army of 845 registered lobbyists or nearly two lobbyists for every member of Congress. 

Former members of the House or Senate to serve as lobbyists. Many times, when people retire from the House or Senate, they become lobbyists for major corporations. Now, first of all, these people know a great deal about the laws that have been passed relating to their new employer's industry, and they know the inside dealings that went into making these laws. What's more, former representatives and senators maintain the privilege of going on to the floor of their old chambers. That means that during a vote on a bill, they can go on the floor and lobby current senators or representatives as the case may be. No other lobbyists can do this. So these former legislators have a greater ability to influence the process than someone who doesn't have the privilege of the floor or the other connections they do. Thus ex-senators and ex-representatives are often valued as lobbyists.  (Read more from How corporation influence the government)

The public needs to become the largest purchasing group organized, then this shit goes 86!
