Yes Political Appointees should be banned from lobbying the Government as well as Congress. It seems Congress is working harder for Corporations then for the people who elected them. We have Alec's ( American Legislative Exchanged) writing legislation that Congress turn around and adopted and pass bills. We the people get screwed. Alec's is a group of conservative state legislators and corporations passing all these bills across states that hurt the people of those states. Paid lobbyists of the corporation members of Alec's who donated money to Congress. We need Citizens United over turned also.
