    Buying Congress - Jack Abramoff wheeling and dealing as a Lobbyist

    in Health

    A CBS News video interview with crooked lobbyist Jack Abramoff explains how he influenced Congress for years, and how this kind of corruption still continues. He explains how he “bought” your Senators and Representatives; how he had Congressional staffers reporting to him instead of to their own bosses!


    Drug companies, of course, are the BIGGEST political lobby, and political lobbying is one of the primary reasons why the drug companies are controlling nearly the entire health industry. Lobbyists, by definition, "conduct activities aimed at influencing public officials and especially members of a legislative body on legislation."
