Argues that politicians in Congress are extorting money from corporations and the people and then use it to buy each other's votes.
"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... Until now, Washington's extortion racket has gone unreported. Yet thanks to an extraordinary effort by Peter Schweizer and the investigative research staff of the Government Accountability Institute, we now know the racketeering methods and the players who profit from them." -- Dust jacket.
