Democrats Join Republicans In Selling Votes & Taking Bribes
Washington, D.C. - Like crack whores selling their wares on a busy street corner, Democratic members of Congress, with their new status as the majority party on Capital Hill, have joined with fellow Republican members of Congress in offering their services to the highest bidder.
The latest example of this exercise in free market politics is clearly demonstrated by the so-called "Patent Reform" bill H.R. 1908 which reads like a patent infringer's wet dream. This bill was written by lobbyists for a handful of the world's largest corporations and will essentially legalize the wholesale theft of property from individual inventors and small companies by these major corporations. To accomplish this goal, these corporations purchased the entire Democratic leadership and gave them their marching orders which they faithfully followed once the checks cleared.
Speaking in support of this open bribery, Speaker Pelosi said, "Look, I know taking handfuls of cash for our votes and letting industry lobbyists write bills is wrong but the Republicans did it when they were in charge, so why shouldn't we? It's not about morality or ethics. Those things don't matter. It's about cold hard cash and that is the American way whether you are a Republican in Congress or a Democrat."
