About this item
Argues that politicians in Congress are extorting money from corporations and the people and then use it to buy each other's votes.
A bombshell investigation reveals how Washington really works: politicians extort money from us, then use it to buy each other's votes. Best-selling author Peter Schweizer reveals: *Obama's "Protection Money": How the Obama Administration targeted industries for criminal investigation but chose not to pursue key political donors. *John Boehner's "Tollbooth": How the Speaker of the House extracts money by soliciting political donations before he will hold crucial votes on the House floor. *The "Slush Fund": How politicians extract "campaign contributions" and then convert them to bankroll lavish lifestyles complete with limos, private jets, golf at five-star resorts, fine wines, and cash for family members. *Capitol Hill's "Underground Economy": How congressmen use a little-known loophole that allows them to secretly link their votes to cash." Extortion "finally makes clear why Congress is so dysfunctional: it's all about making money, not making law.
