besides open it up for more qualified people, that would eliminate the grooming of candidates by narrowly interested donors.
along with that we should of course have appointment-only lobbyists w/o preferential treatment to big money. no corporate lobbyists at all roaming the halls of congress. verizon gets on a list equally with mothers against drunk drivers for an example
no foreign lobbyists whatsoever.
lobby under the scrutiny of the camera and the congress, not secretly

Sheila you're a lying POS.
do you think the airline will get preferential treatment from jackson lee?
you do?
BINGO!
do you think these things happen all the time but a republican (lobbyist) organization got hold of the story or planted it to make it look like only democrat congress people are treated preferentially due to their potential influence?
you do?
BINGO!
do you think a democrat (lobbyist) organization would do the same thing?
you believe that too?
YOU WIN THE BINGO PRIZE OF THE EVENING!
