Summary The Buying of Congress documents the ways in which special interests have bent Congress to their will to advance their legislative agendas- agendas that conflict directly with the broader interests of the American people. It makes the case that individual members of Congress and the institution generally are willing accomplices in a system that is responsive only to those with the financial wherewithal to make their voices heard on Capitol Hill.
