Price the bribes

House Republicans have voted to put the independent Office of Congressional Ethics under control of the Ethics Committee -- a move that Democrats slammed in the hours before the new Congress is sworn in.
"Republicans claim they want to ‘drain the swamp,’ but the night before the new Congress gets sworn in, the House GOP has eliminated the only independent ethics oversight of their actions," Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement. "Evidently, ethics are the first casualty of the new Republican Congress."
Congress will not work without grease. 

The better approach is to legalize anonymous bribes so we can share the bets.  The idea of sending bribes to political campaigns works, it makes the bribes more visible.  We ned lobbyists who essentially group fund, then we get a whole pit of traders playing the bribe game and the bribes can be priced accurately.

The Swamp is not your metropolitan government, special liquidity events ate not explained by a bus trip to see the mayor's office.  Hence, the two political parties rely on deception because the trip around the loop from my home town to my affirmative action appointees in the Swamp, that trip is too long for me to price, I need bribery to shorten the loop.  If we have to wait on the loop sequence to price, then we will have large periodic recessions.
