The Government has gotten so incredibly DIRTY that they NO LONGER represent their CONSTITUENTS. I think a law like this and Long over due. Furthermore, why should we let ANY FORMER MEMBER OF CONGRESS, BEFORE IR AFTER THE LAW IS ENACTED LOBBY OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS? The members are elected By The PEOPLE! For the PEOPLE To represent THE PEOPLE that ELECTED THEM! ALL LOBBYISTS FROM ANYWHERE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM INFLUENCING OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS FROM DIVERTING THEIR ATTENTION FROM THE PEOPLE’S AFFAIRS! The REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAS TURNED INTO A BABANA REPUBLIC, LARGELY BY REPUBLICANS. VOTE EM OUT!
