In case you were laboring under the impression that Lobbyist or Ethics Reform would be actual reform....

Leave it to Congress to just re-arrange the golf flags and keep for themselves the opportunities that will surely arise to avail themselves of the perks and freebies to which they have long been accustomed.... and addicted....

Their smoke-and-mirrors way of legislating ethics and lobbying reform seems to always end up resulting in John and Suzie-Q. Taxpayer getting hoo-doo'ed into thinking Congress is actually going to police its members and enforce its requirements that they behave, raise money, and legislate ethically---when, in fact,all their nice-sounding ethics-change rhetoric is just so much window-dressing to make us think they are actually changing their business-as-usual way of doing things.

I don't know about you...., but I'm not buying what they're selling under the guise of "reform." And, I'm tired of being subjected to Congress-members' greedy sleight-of-hand, bait-and-switch tricks to allow them to continue riding the political gravy-trains. So, lets have some true legislating in the sunshine and true ethics reform and enforcement for a change....

If Congress-members' in-flow of money and gravy is cut too much for them to bear as a result, they can always resign and go back to being trial lawyers or some other lucrative private pursuit.... and give the poor American voting taxpayers a break.... and an honest, ethical Legislative Branch of government.
