The 535 Members of Congress: The Real Top %1



Though there is often much focus on the richest private individuals in the United States, the U.S. Congress actually has far more economic power.

In this video, economist Robert Lawson compares the economic power of the 535 most wealthy private citizens with the spending power of the 535 members of Congress. You might be surprised by what you find out.

As Congress continues to spend and government continues to increase in size, our economic freedom will continue to decrease. And as our economic freedom decreases, our economic opportunities and quality of life are threatened.

79159 No we shouldn't be more concerned at least we still have a little say in what politicians do, companies and corporations which are run by the rich only has money as their bottom line no matter how much damage they do to society, the earth or your rights.

How can this guy expect anyone to take this video seriously? He's comparing apples and oranges, either compare both their incomes or both their spending power and then that's a fair comparison. You'll find that a group of corporations way outstrips a group of politicians.

I can't believe this guy could be that stupid to ignore the obvious so the question is what's his agenda and for who?

79159 That was just a obvious guess after just a quick look at that website promoting that video, it's funded by Koch Industries which have paid out millions in compensation payments for polluting the environment from their petro chemical industry also involved in bribery, unfair dismissal and what do you know spending millions backing political groups and lobbying congress as well as supporting that bastion of democracy George Bush.

It's a good example of how corporations use the internet by employing thousands as some do to give a hopelessly biased opinion to people who will believe anything if it says 'democratic' in front of it while actually being the opposite.
