First, lets start with the definition of lobbying.
Lobbying: Seek to influence (a politician or public official) on an issue
So the rights favorite lobbies include, Big Oil, Pharma, Big Banks, Big Industry. Abortion,
The left also engages in Lobbying. There favorite lobbies include: Alternate Energy, Unions, Big Education (NEA), Anti-Abortion
Occupy Wall St is techincally lobbying to get money out of politics.
So I know you hate the koch brothers and think republicans kowtow to corporations. But both sides do it.
The unions are notorious for lobbying the democratic party for a harder position on unions including card check.
So is lobbying bad or is it only bad with issues you disagree with?
So food for thought.
