Why? Because they can. They're a monopoly in most places.

Hey, according to their highly paid lobbyists, they are in a healthy competition environment...

The world would be abetter place if they couldn't lobby. It has gotten so far out of control. I don't see how it is even legal, laws are now written by special interest groups....so sad.

You should watch The Four Horsemen, it's a really comprehensive look at how our economy, political process and etc are now almost fully controlled by corporations. The sun is setting on the American empire, this is the beginning of the decline, nothing short of a revolution will tip the scales at this point as they have deregulated all barriers and protections.

The reality of it is the US isn't a democracy anymore and hasn't been for years. Its a crony capitalist nation borderlining a corporatocracy. More and more laws are made for the big business against the people, and will continue until there is a major shake up. But for that level of a shake up, it would take almost a revolution (which is what big business it trying to make sure can't happen, with more and more control over the internet and personal devices.)

The game is definitely rigged for the corporations.
