I'm thinking Congress has better things to do than protect big binezz from law suits and holding hearings for steroids, only to glean a few months house arrest for the worst figures involved. I mean really, if you eat 4 Big Macs a day, then shoot your mother in law, then blame the dizzying effects of steroid use, I suppose you deserve this type of hack government lacking any type of real priorities.

Are these really the most pressing issues to bring to the floor of Congress???
They're representing their constituency - corporate America.
