An interesting video looking at how the US Government is bought and paid by the financial industry, the military industrial complex and the pharmaceutical industry.

over the last 10 years wall street has donated 5 billion dollars on campaign funding and lobbying, The pharmaceutical industry over 1 billion, with 1,100 lobbyists in washington, ensuring Americans pay up to 2 or 3 times more for prescription drugs than anywhere else.

So it seems unless you have a few million in your back pocket your demands to the government will have to go to the back of the que until you buck up your ideas become a billionaire and hire a few lobbyists. Either that or take to the streets.

I know Bernie Sanders is a socialist, but that shouldn't detract from the information provided in the video.
