  •  Lobbyists are working overtime (0+ / 0-)

    this weekend.  

    Once the bill has passed, this stuff won't stop. The lobbyists will still be on retainer, doing all they can to disparage the plan while proposing their own "fixes".  

    Imagine what it would have been like if corporations spent billions on lobbyists to work against the Civil Rights Act or the Medicare bill.  This is going to be very different and the country will be fighting this battle for the next decade.  We'll have to get used to it or find a way to restrict lobbying.
