Lobbyists – Bribery is Legal – Lobbyists & Politicians Keeping Each Other Well Fed

Lobbying, to most people, looks like bribery — the lobbyist who refuses to contribute to the reelection campaign isn’t going to get a meeting, much less an ally.

No member of congress wants to feel bought. What they want to feel is convinced. It’s the lobbyist’s job to make the members of congress ‘feel’ like they’re making the right decision, not just the decision they were paid to make.

Lobbying, persuasion, or interest representation is the act of attempting to influence the actions, policies, or decisions of officials in their daily life, most often legislators or members of regulatory agencies. Lobbying is done by many types of people, associations and organized groups, including individuals in the private sector, corporations, fellow legislators or government officials, or advocacy groups (interest groups). Lobbyists may be among a legislator’s constituencies, meaning a voter or bloc of voters within their electoral district, or not; they may engage in lobbying as a business, or not. Professional lobbyists are people whose business is trying to influence legislation, regulation, or other government decisions, actions, or policies on behalf of a group or individual who hires them. Individuals and nonprofit organizations can also lobby as an act of volunteering or as a small part of their normal job (for instance, a CEO meeting with a representative about a project important to their company, or an activist meeting with their legislator in an unpaid capacity). Governments often define and regulate organized group lobbying that has become influential.

  1. Thank your Supreme Court for re-defining bribery and declaring money free speech. Congress should have health benefits that are equal to or less than medicare and only while in office. Pass that bill if you’re not a crippled crook taking money from corporations. My special thanks to all politicians for the growth that has benefited about 100 fucking billionaires. The rest of us enjoy more crime, more pollution, more disease, more poverty, frequent wars, higher taxes, shitty health care and less services. There is no morality left in our good ole Christian government. Using Christ for a crutch is just unbelievable. Lobby your state trouper the next time you get a speeding ticket.
