What’s Wrong with America in Two Sentences

Two stories from Politico this morning tell it all:

1.  Jack Abramoff, the disgraced former lobbyist who went to prison for bribery, is now boasting that he pretty much owned 100 members of Congress back in the day.

2.  Thirty Fortune 500 companies paid no federal income taxes in 2008, 2009, 0r 2010, despite combined profits of $160 billion.
