In honor of Abramoff, watered-down ‘reform’
Washington lobbyists lobbied for a weak lobbying reform bill. They got what they lobbied for. Shouldn’t that be proof enough that most lobbyists ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢”šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â Jack Abramoff comes to mind ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢”šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â have too much power?
Not, apparently, for the Republican leadership that is pushing a watered-down version of already watered-down reform.
On the other hand, I’m not hearing Democrats scream loudly for genuine reform, are you?
