Money is the all-purpose tool of government. Surely the answer lies therein.
When it’s feeding time in Washington, there are a lot of mouths lined up at the trough. Everyone wants a piece of the pie. Elected representatives want to keep their constituents happy, and that means cash in one form or another. Party platforms require cash in order to fulfill their visions and promises. Special interests employ dedicated teams of lawyers and lobbyists to secure their part of the federal fodder. Daily life in D.C. is pretty much a giant tug-of-war attempting to channel some of Uncle Sam’s greenbacks in one direction or another.
