Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama calls on lobbyists to disclose their contacts, and proposes strict limits on their contributions to candidates for federal office.
Oops, did he forget that his buddies in the unions aren't registered as lobbyist. I guess it's his way of getting back at the Supreme Court decision.
What about the acorn groups, unions, aarp, They too need to restricted on their contributions, their ability to organize and participate in elections and the amounts made public(really public, not partial amounts hidden as members contributions)
How about we just do away with lobbyists altogether?
I can see why this country continues to be in economic turmoil. The Republicans are acting like spoiled little brats! I'm 61 years old and have never seen a party remain seated when the president is finishing his observations during a State of the Union Message. In prior days he was shown respect, right or wrong, but not this bunch of bureaucrats. I think we should go to a one party system or have "term limits" and then perhaps the "old timers" who think they are "something to be recondened with" will loose their jobs, just like their constituants have. Love your country, more than yourself, show respect for one another, and earn your respect by trying to work together for the Good of the People (All people, not just your districts!)
The President spoke to the joint houses. Why do the republicans get off speaking to a packed house . Of republicans I mean!
