Lobbyist Influence, Chapter XXIV

Steny Hoyer said yesterday that the Medicare Part D plan was crafted for the benefit of Washington lobbyists.

He's right about that.

That's why we need members of Congress who refuse to dance to the lobbyist tune. It's why we need members of Congress who reject lobbyist campaign cash.

Politicians-as-usual like Jeb Bradley have failed us. That's why it is critical that we not simply replace a weak, wishy-washy, lobbyist-friendly Republican with a weak, wishy-washy, lobbyist-friendly Democrat.

I've pledged to reject special interest money. Jeb Bradley and Jim Craig continue to pocket their cash.
