The Best Government Money Can Buy

The Washington Post reports on how the "Fortune 500 companies that invested millions of dollars in electing Republicans are emerging as the earliest beneficiaries of a government controlled by President Bush and the largest GOP House and Senate majority in a half century."

In a front page article, the Post reviews the benefits received for their investment by companies such as MBNA Corp, Exxon, Wal-Mart, and other Fortune 5000 companies from Republican initiatives including limitations on class action suits, the bankrupcy law, and Alaska oil drilling. Wal-Mart, for example, has been a major contributor to Republicans, and benefits from the restrictions in class action suits as it is believed to be the most sued company in America.
