YouTube - Republican Minority Leader John Boehner explains why he handed out bribes on the House floor This sort of thing needs to be illegal and punishable by jail time. Also, I really think all politicians should be held to a NASCAR standard where they're forced to wear patches from all of their sponsors. Lastly, this is further proof why I refuse to vote Republican or Democrat. Republicans by and large want big business to run your life and face little opposition while Democrats tend to favor big government and face equally minimal opposition. But direct evidence like this is really, really worrisome. Why doesn't this bother more people? Why don't we hear about this sort of thing far more often? What are your thoughts on the video? Lastly, what are your thoughts as a whole regarding buying and selling politicians like this? Should it be allowed? Should they be punished for doing it?
