In this article, Ralph Nader cites a few examples of the impunity with which the rich and powerful ignore the law in America. Our biggest employers steal wages from min-wage workers. Taxes are evaded, and the residue simply not paid by many corporations. Military contractors kill with impunity, but so do hospitals in much bigger numbers. Hospital cost-cutting costs tens of thousands of lives each year, and no one is prosecuted. Telecomm companies overbill consumers. Hospitals overbill Medicare. It starts at the top with presidents who are contemptuous of the Constitution. All the enforcement agencies are starved of personnel, even though this actually costs the government money because (of course) enforcement produces more fines and recovered taxes than it costs the government.
