Las Vegas, NV, September 25, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- An over-whelming majority of respondents to a new Money Journal poll say the U.S. government is corrupt. In fact, 80% of those who took the online survey say that lobbyists contributing billions of dollars to political campaigns have swayed government leaders to corrupt the government.
The survey paints a disturbing picture of the American political scene, which is covered by the mass media on a daily basis. The two major political parties, Republicans and Democrats, seem unable to agree on much of anything and only provide a lack of leadership in their ranks with squabbling on the news making the headlines as many Americans suffer without clear direction from political leaders.
President Barack Obama was elected to office on a platform of “Change” but has been unable to reach agreements with Republican leaders in Congress on a series of issues, including an agreement on a final budget for the government as the U.S. economy sputters along with little real improvement.
The political failure stagnates the Obama administration on the most important issue for most Americans, the economy and angers the public. Congress has also gained a reputation for corruption with dozens of members being charged over decades and convicted of crimes.
Money Journal regularly surveys visitors on important issues related to the economy and is a leading independent resource for consumers. Journalists, including experts in stocks, bonds, real estate, money management, personal finance and banking provide reports and forecasts on Money Journal so consumers can better protect themselves in the world of finance.
