Corruption in China--from covert to overt

http://tinyurl.com/cqdk9a

I am a huge fan of massages and in China, you just can't get much better than a $10 massage. However, using public funds to support this habit is absolutely ridiculous. The CCP has done some pretty amazing things for China. Bringing a majority of its citizens out of absolute poverty is HIGHLY impressive. Checks and balances on deliberate abuses of power need to be put in place. Much like they need to be put in place in the States. Outrageous bonuses to incompetent executives comes to mind. So many have lost so much all due to incompetent individuals being put in positions of power. If we, as US citizens, aren't able to control gross abuse of power, why is it that expect authoritarian regimes to do the same? Are China's systems and US systems really that much different? It all seems like different colors on the same cat, if you ask me.
