We currently have far too many lobbyists in Washington DC. I believe that ALL lobbyists should be banned along with their millions of dollars that they use to BUY you Congress members vote. Don’t you think for a minute that the Congress member will vote the way you as a private citizen wishes, not in a NY minute, they vote the way the guy who gave them the MOST money. Just look at ANY members of Congress. They go to Washington penniless, example Sen Hatch said so on the Senate floor yesterday, and now almost all of them are millionaires, they can’t get to that level on $187,000 annually. If they can do that in a short period of time maybe its time that their salary should be reduced. Finally for the voters that read this, did you know that everyone of these members will get $187,000 for LIFE after the leave. Now please show me ANYWHERE that you can get this! Our military member MUST serve at least 20 years and then they only get about 35% of their take home pay. Why doesn’t Congress either get this retirement or provide the members of the Military that put their life’s on the line to defend this country EVERYDAY! They don’t put their lives in danger in their jobs.
