Every year, no matter the party in power, the American people are polled as to whether or not Congress is doing a good job and every year, the people consistently say they are not. Yet, they continue to elect the same blowhard, treasonous vultures to represent them and ignore the Constitution. So, why does 97% of Congress continue to get re-elected year after year? It’s called an incumbent protection system.

In a recent report by Adam Andrzejewski at Forbes, he decided to elaborate on what an incumbent protection system is and how it works.

So, Andrzejewski and his auditors decided to look at the congressional campaign donor database and what they discovered about the solicitations for donations by members of Congress from federal contractors in their districts was astounding.

While the base understanding of how all that works if known and understood by many who follow politics, many people have no idea what takes place.

…MEMBERS OF CONGRESS OWN INVESTMENT STOCK IN, ARE EMPLOYED BY, AND RECEIVE RETIREMENT PENSIONS FROM FEDERAL CONTRACTORS TO WHOM THEY DIRECT BILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS.

MOREOVER, MEMBERS SPONSOR LEGISLATION THAT AFFECTS THESE CONTRACTORS. THE CONTRACTOR’S LOBBYISTS THEN ADVOCATE FOR THE LEGISLATION THAT HELPS THE MEMBER AND THE CONTRACTOR. OFTENTIMES, THE CONTRACTOR’S LOBBYIST ALSO DONATES CAMPAIGN CASH TO THE MEMBER.

Andrzejewski provided 5 examples (2 Republicans & 3 Democrats) to detail the conflict of interest among members of Congress concerning this issue. These certainly are not the only ones.
