Point of clarification

Last Friday, I posted on why I didn't like Rep. Kennedy's proposal on a lifetime ban on lobbying.

I'm not anti-reform. The problem isn't with the lobbyists, its with congress. Need I remind anyone that Jack Abramoff was never a member of congress?

Changing who can lobby won't change the fact that certain members of congress are in bed with lobbyists, it will only change who they're in bed with.

We need more strict penalties for taking bribes as well as tougher investigations into who may be taking bribes/gifts.
