New legislation targeting members of Congress would do just that.
I’m all for a lifetime ban on lawmakers becoming lobbyists.
"A Center for Responsive Politics study found that more than half of currently employed former members of the last session of Congress now work at lobbying firms or as lobbying clients."
Who really is naive enough to believe these people give a shit about us? Seriously.
Their time supposedly representing us is simply their "minor leagues" before going through the revolving door to Wall Street and K Street.
Want to lock the revolving door?
