- Corrupted our representative form of government via the sale of tax favors by politicians to the lobbyists of special interests, and this has resulted in a very unfair tax burden and lack of representation for citizens without lobbyists.

- Added about 20% to the cost of producing goods and services in the U.S., resulting in the exportation of our companies and jobs rather than our products.
