Instead of providing necessary services at a reasonable rate of profit, a powerful oligarchy of financial interests, led by the Chamber of Commerce, used its political power to bend or rewrite the rules.

This same parasitic capitalism, caused by corporate ownership of our political system, recently ruined our economy and the gulf coast.
