« Legal Tender: Spam Alert | Main | It's What's for Dinner »

I'm surprised it's only 63% of Americans that believe most politicians would be influenced by a lobbyist.

I think all politicians are influenced by corporations and lobbyists....well, except of course Dale Cardwell, who claims he won't take any money from PACs.

Show me a politician that will represent the small businesses who can't afford lobbyists. I'll bet one won't step forward. If they do, I need help writing a bill to go before Congress to help the small businesses. Oh, by the way, we can't afford a lobbyist and we can't afford to contribute to your campaign.

... waiting for a politician who has enough clout and has backbone to stand against a lobbyist who helps big business shut us out of government contracting.
