Ex-Rep. Gilchrest: Pressure Groups "Have a Hold on Congress!"


(8:01)

This is the problem at the heart of US foreign policy (and also in relation to corporate affairs and many other matters), behind closed doors the arm twisting of various lobby groups is immense. If the process here was utterly transparent, that all meetings had to be video taped by Law and made available to the public, then an open discussion could be had and nefarious attempts to influence US Congressional Representative could be curtailed.

Take note of this video for it represents, in large part, how Congress actually functions.
