The U.S. Corpgress
We have the best Congress money can buy.
The worst Congress money can buy.
---Bill Moyers & Michael Winship 
Corpgress is what the money gets.
Congress ought to be called "Corpgress." Corporations, their trade associations, and allies like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have bought members of Congress lock stock and barrel by financing their election campaigns, by lobbying them for favors, by ghost writing their legislation, and by showering them through loopholes with perks. Nowhere is this truer than when it comes to the war and spy industries that dominate the "corpocracy," or the Devil's marriage between corporations and government. 
The powerless voices for the common good of America are ignored. Congress, through its decisions and actions betray the very idea of public service for the common good. And the American people know it. Congress' reputation has continued to nosedive, with only 10-15% of the populace currently approving its conduct. The American people, except for those in the 10-15% (probably all "members" of the corpocracy) have come to expect nothing good from Congress. How this pathetic and perilous state of affairs has come to pass is no mystery.
