I'm far from off base. I've fought these guys directly for over a decade. I've consulted companies all over the country that have gone under from the direct actions of these swindlers. I've dealt with senators and governors who gloss over when presented with indisputable logic, because they're owing to these lobbyists. And I've been asked to leave when referring to such public records.
Is government at the root of the banking scandals too? Or is it possibly that these industries have so much money that they can buy political support along side their worker support?
