    Companies right now are hiring GOP lobbyists at top dollar in anticipation of November.

    It takes years to develop relationships and you only give a boat load of money to someone you trust. The solution is Congressional Term Limits. Increased turn over makes buying lawmakers a waste of money.

    What a huge distortion of reality. There are more lobbyists in DC (with the Dems in compete control) than there were under the Bush administration. Some of the lobbyists are even in the White House. If you are looking for corruption, look no further.

    Ever hear of the “K Street Project”? Dick Armey and Tom Delay set up a money pipeline. Lobbyists–not staffers–wrote most of the legislation that became law from 1994 to 2006.

    Florida has term limits in its state legislature, and the lobbyists run EVERYTHING. Term limits only give the lobbyists another reason to run things, because they can tell the legislators that they don’t even know enough about how things run to write legislation. So, the lobbyists write the legislation they want, give it to the legislators to pass into law, and then sit back in comfort.
