Item description

A bombshell investigation reveals how Washington really works: politicians extort money from us, then use it to buy each other s votes. Best-selling author Peter Schweizer reveals: *Obama s "Protection Money": How the Obama Administration targeted industries for criminal investigation but chose not to pursue key political donors. *John Boehner s "Tollbooth": How the Speaker of the House extracts money by soliciting political donations before he will hold crucial votes on the House floor. *The "Slush Fund": How politicians extract "campaign contributions" and then convert them to bankroll lavish lifestyles complete with limos, private jets, golf at five-star resorts, fine wines, and cash for family members. *Capitol Hill s "Underground Economy": How congressmen use a little-known loophole that allows them to secretly link their votes to cash. " Extortion "finally makes clear why Congress is so dysfunctional: it s all about making money, not making law." 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.
