A rose by any other name is still a rose.. We should call lobby what it really is: a 'bribe'.
We have the best government money can buy.
You betchya... because those consumer groups, who also lobby, are just as crooked, right?
I don't care for lobbyist, per say, but that's how the gubberment works... want to get some attention, you're more than welcome to raise money and lobby too.
