This country is getting more and more corrupt where the disparity between the have's and have nots is all based on special interest groups, the wealthy, and the government all being in bed together. The gap is getting so wide that the little guy hardly stands a fighting chance anymore.

This report is absolutely not surprising and the government needs to step in. They won't though.
