This is because they gain so much power and money thru their existing business model-sort of a bigger is better trend towards oligopoly and monopoly. This started with the oil companies merging into ever bigger corporations. Also this was done by big banks, pharmaceutical companies, media companies, weapons companies, hospital chains, software companies, ....... At some point they spend more money on lobbying and on campaign contributions than on their products, research and development, sales, employees, and customers. They buy out their competitors and restrict competition, then they raise prices. They get bailouts, government contracts, PPP loans, favorable court rulings, etc.....  article

    Please click and comment to the EPA ant the Amy Corps of Engineers. Here is an alert from the Waterkeepers

    The last chance to comment on a Trump administration proposal that would gut the Clean Water Act is April 15. The proposal, which has no basis in science, would be disastrous for our waterways, removing safeguards from historically protected rivers, streams, lakes, wetlands, and other waters.

    Just as a child with the flu can infect a whole classroom, pollution in these waterways could taint all the waters they connect with, imperiling drinking water sources and endangered species from coast to coast.

    Just a few examples:

    Sixty percent of creeks and streams in California could lose Clean Water Act protection.
    The Central Closed Basin, a 14,605-square-mile sub-watershed of the Rio Grande, stretching from Albuquerque into Mexico, could lose protection.
    Irrigation ditches that run for 250 miles along just one creek in the Rogue River watershed could lose protection.
    Montana’s Big Hole River, home to the last native sustaining population of Arctic Grayling in the lower 48 United States, could lose protection.
    Our complete work on this proposal is here.

    “It’s vital to the health of our larger rivers that these smaller rivers are protected,” says Wade Fellin, program director of Upper Missouri Waterkeeper.
