It’s a lot bigger than a few hundred corrupt individuals. Our government has been bought a paid for by a lot of different entities.
Everyone is cashing in. From local politicians all the way up to all three branches of the federal government.
The bigger problem is in DC. We need Citizen Representatives from every county in the nation - NOT these few hundred paid for professional politicians. That would give us around 3,500 Representatives paid by the local people instead, and voting and working from their county seats instead of Washington, IMO.
