Remember, R or D, they are all cocksuckers from Yankton:
House Democrats are suddenly balking at the tough lobbying reforms they touted to voters last fall as a reason for putting them in charge of Congress.
Now that they are running things, many Democrats want to keep the big campaign donations and lavish parties that lobbyists put together for them. They’re also having second thoughts about having to wait an extra year before they can become high-paid lobbyists themselves should they retire or be defeated at the polls.
The growing resistance to several proposed reforms now threatens passage of a bill that once seemed on track to fulfill Democrats’ campaign promise of cleaner fundraising and lobbying practices.
The sweet thing for the Dems is after 12 years of GOP control and the creeping corruption of power, the GOP won’t have any leg to stand on to make it an issue in '08. So they don’t really need to clean things up.
