    Liberal pols tend to sell their policies as a defense against the power of special interests… -TAI
    They do sell it that way. The teachers’ union, big labor, the trial lawyers, and green oriented businesses to name a few, don’t count as special interests in this political universe.
    And now that Microsoft and more recently Apple have learned their lesson and spread lobby money around there may not be a lot of additional opportunity to add new large-scale clients to the lobbyists rolodexes.

    I wonder why some lobbyists think things are going to return to normal? It seems to me that the 2014 election will be a rerun of the TEA Party inspired 2010 election. And increased TEA Party power will not be good for Big Government which they violently oppose. Cuts, Cuts, and more Cuts, is what can be expected of TEA Party control of government.
