Post Fourth Branch of US Government 


Quote:
Republicans do not cede control of Congress for nearly two months, but money, power and influence are already beginning to change hands. The political economy, at least here in the capital, is humming for Democrats.

Democratic lobbyists are fielding calls from pharmaceutical companies, the oil and gas industry and military companies, all of which had grown accustomed to patronizing Republicans, as the environment in Washington abruptly shifts. from NY Times


Heard a comment by the comedian Bill Maher that the lobbying has become the 4th branch of our government. I guess this will be the proof. Republicans were in the spotlight because they were in power. Oh well, hope the Democrats can do better this time around.
