Because the lawmakers have put Government employees, our public servants, above the law. Because the people are not the source of power in our nation, they are the source of taxes and jobs for the Government Bureaus, which have become businesses. Worse, though, the laws that control economics, financial laws, the laws of Corporate entities, and small business are not written for the benefit of the people but for the benefit of the Corporations: "What's good for the Rich and Powerful, is Good for America". Just ask them. Or for the people. The people are the source of the money and power of the Nation but can use none of it for their own.
