The husband of Dianne Feinstein (who is a Real Estate Agent) just was awarded a contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms. Then, in a surprise move, that government agency gets $25Billion ($25,000,000,000) in increased funding.
Gosh, what a coincidence. Our government is corrupt. Our experiment has failed. In retrospect it seems that the founders should have ensured that term limits were placed on elected officials so we could limit the damage. I also blame the Sixteenth Amendment. Money is power, and that amendment gives them unlimited access to both.
