    based on this list, it would seem that the Democratic party, which claims it is tired of corrupt ‘old’ politics, is just as much as the culprit as the Republicans.

    Congress is corrupt and allowing banks to rip off americans tax payers. They got their commission’s on bad paper and paid law makers to do it. How else could they get bonuses for running America into the ground. Let the banks go down, and congress can be laid off and replaced.

    It’s interesting to note that 6 out of the 20 are Democrats (30%), but 14 out of 20 are Republicans (70%)! So which group is more corrupt?

    Congress will always be corrupt as long as they abuse their powers. They have sold our freedoms more than once. They fell to the trusts and monopolies, now they have fallen to the lobbists. The Declaration of Independence stated whenever a governing body no longer performs its duty, it is the right, nay the duty of the people to ABOLISH IT. We the people of the United States have the power to end this insanity, but one must become empowered. Through knowledge comes power. I would like to say that I read a fine book on government. It is called FUTURE PERFECT by William B. Williams.
