The fact that politicians frequently become lobbyists after they leave office is an affront to our republic and the Democratic process. Without this law even if we passed term limits in Congress the same players would be influencing the game. Congressional approval is abysmally low and I feel much of it has to do with the corrupt system that allows politicians to keep thier seat indefinitely or leave only to influence policy from behind the scenes. You have gotten too comfortable, and disconnected to the people you serve. Our politicians need too look more to figures such as Cincinnatus and George Washington. Come, serve your people, and then go home to live your life honestly.
