Who Really Runs The Government?

Who really runs the federal government? Get this: in 1986, lobbyists spent an average of $113,000 per legislator in the U.S. House and Senate. For all 535 members of Congress, K Street dumped in $60.45 million. Fast forward to 2015: lobbyists spent an average of $5.7 million for each Washington legislator, upping the K-Street ante to $3.05 billion. Where do they get this money? Where does it go? What retrun do they expect? Answers: you lose. Big money Wall Street and K Street elites control the entire federal government. They win.
