A stunning 2015 study found that corporations now devote more resources to lobby Congress than Congress spends to fund itself.

“Why Is Congress So Dumb?”, a Washington Post article by Bill Pascrell Jr., reveals that there were more than 6,200 registered tax lobbyists, vs. 130 aides on the Senate Finance Committee and the Joint Committee on Taxation. A staggering ratio approaching 50-to-1 favoring corporations over the American people.
