    Why can't Congress be bought? Is that really the question you're asking?

    Bribery is a Felony, and is so for a very good reason.

    It has been tried many times

    A free press and criminal justice system has made examples of those who have strayed

    You have no faint idea of what you're talking about Winger, we do not have anything resembling a 'free press' or an impartial 'criminal justice system'...if indeed this were the case we would see a set of radical reforms in Congress, and mass-indictments...yet all remains as it was! Open your eyes!

    Not long ago to deal with such a complicated problem. In addition, the content of the committee is restrictive. They demand research on things like the failure of most government agencies to end the new IR negotiations in three years, and the implications for the "vulnerable", those of the "regional Australia", of course, productivity of the agency, employee mood and conditions. The committee will also consider a broader "possible" role for the responsible minister. This is already quite broad, but the Minister of Labor, Michaelia Cash, seems unable to act.

    We have more of a free press than at any time in human history

    ANYONE has access to extend their thoughts and opinions on any subject. Even Trump is allowed to have his own Twitter account

    Social media is not the press.

    Try to go into a police press conference and tell them you have a Twitter account, let me in.

    Of course it is

    See which amendment would be cited if government tried to restrict content on social media

    Go into any press conference then, just show them your twitter account.

    There is big press and little press and thousands of levels of press in between

    Just read the interweb and you can see the wide range of political thought. Rather than local papers with limited distribution, you can access any paper in the world with the click of a mouse

    We have a more open press than at any time in history
