Pelosi has a plan November 1, 2006

Our soon-to-be Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has a new law in the works which would limit if not completely destroy the house side of lobbying. Sounds good to me, and anyone else who thinks that voters and not corporations should have control of the government. My fear is that this, no matter how far it goes, will only slow them down temporarily. I have said before that I feel the only way to completely eliminate corporate money from politics is to remove ALL private money. I did a quick outline of what I meant Here. But I am impressed that before she takes office she has already put forth a pan to drastically reduce the influence of the lobbyists on the House of Representatives, which is a move I applaud. Of course it might also have to do with the lobbyists giving more money to the Republicans…

 

Heres an article about this.

Lobbyists won’t like what Pelosi has in mind

 

Of course this could just mean that we get a new name for lobbyist. I hate to always be so cynical but I have few reasons not to be.
