Our political system, which can only be construed as revolving-door politics
, has been hijacked by special interests through the use of armies of lobbyists
which are able to spend vast sums of money to buy influence
from countless politicians and their staffs in order to protect their interests. The Scam
: Politicians and/or their staff members leave their positions and are hired by special-interest groups as lobbyists. Then, using their connections, these "new lobbyists", are able to funnel money back to politicians and the cycle starts all over again. To end this flagrant abuse and corruption, here is our suggested Permanent Lobby Reform
, designed to end "revolving-door politics" in "the best government that money can buy"
Our Proposed Lobby Reform Model
- All emoluments are prohibited and lobbying of elected officials shall be in writing and subject to public scrutiny.
- No individual previously employed as a lobbyist shall be eligible to hold any type of public employment related to legislative, policy-making or political campaign activities
- Government employees, including elected officials and their staffs, shall not be permitted to work as lobbyists, directly or indirectly, after leaving office or government employment.
