The Price of Politics

Lobbyists’ Happy Hour

Take off them low heels and put on them ho heels:

“K Street lobbyists this week took a downright jubilant tone when discussing their most recent public disclosures, which reflected an uptick in business fueled by massive government spending; debate over an infrastructure deal and possible tax increases to help foot the bill; and regulatory actions in the Biden administration. A limited return of congressional earmarks and the slim majorities in both chambers have also been a boost to lobbyists’ business.”

I suppose some of this should be expected: Because Republicans only try to hurt Americans by defunding projects to pay for tax cuts (and oddly to buy weapons for the military, go figure), the Democrats are investing in projects to help Americans, and so lobbyists want their clients’ voices to be heard; “Corporations are people, my friends,” as Willard famously told us and  money is free speech.

Money talks.

    Also too, if the stock market defines a presidency, then Biden is the best President ever. Take that, TFG.

      Stock market rocked n’rolled during Clinton and Obama terms also. Yet too many people persist in believing GQPers are best for big biz/stock market interests.

    Maybe Trump will do a Jim Jones and call out to the Trumpites to take the magic hate potion number 9 and be on their way to paradise. Or, just a pair of dice as the case maybe. A twist on “roll em if you got em.”, if you will.
