Conventional wisdom holds that Washington is broken because outside special interests bribe politicians. The reverse is true: politicians have developed a new set of brass-knuckle legislative tactics designed to extort wealthy industries and donors into forking over big donations -- cash that lawmakers often funnel into the pockets of their friends and family. Until now, Washington's extortion scheme has gone unreported. Yet thanks to an extraordinary effort by Peter Schweizer and the investigative staff of the Government Accountability Institute, we now know the racketeering methods and the players who profit from them. Exhaustively researched and compellingly told, Extortion names names as it pulls back the curtain to reveal the shocking new racket ruling Washington.

This is a sad revelation on how low the members of congress can and will go in order to extort federal reserve notes. I am beginning to see why the world does not respect or trust the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION.
