This film may not be made about your states representative, but it does represent the very real problems of the “Cat and mouse games” and the corporate greed and criminal actions of the US politics. We need to see these people for the whores some of them our. The Lie and cheat to get what they need, We should demand more from our representatives.
The story of how Tom Delay stole the U.S. Congress. It’s the story of one of the most blatant power grabs in American history, and how a District Attorney in Texas turned out to be the biggest threat to the national DeLay Machine. The film is a warning about how easy it is for American democracy to be hijacked by a combination of relentless ambition and corporate millions. It makes the case that DeLay built a “custom-made Congress” that is still providing votes for his agenda.
