Lobbyists See No Difference Between Dems & Repubs
Washington, D.C. - They are breaking out the champagne on K Street to celebrate nothing. Yes, that's right. The lobbyists are celebrating nothing, or to be more exact, they are celebrating the fact that, as far as they are concerned, there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans.
Speaking on behalf of the American Society of K Street Lobbyists, ex-congressman and now lobbyist Vin Weber said, "In all honesty, we were concerned when the Democrats took over both houses of Congress. Fortunately, our concern was unnecessary. Now that the Democrats are in charge we have found that nothing has changed except the names and the amounts on the checks we write to the senators and representatives. Pelosi and Reid are no different than Hastert and McConnell. As long as the money keeps coming, we write the bills and they pass them. God bless America."
Assimilated Press tried several times to contact Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid but they were unavailable for comment. However, Pelosi's office did say that for a sizable donation they would see that she returned our calls within the hour.
