There needs to be a law placed with a Do Not Compete requirement where ALL Congressional persons and their senior staff are banned from working for or dealing with lobbyists or companies they have dealt with during their time in office for a period of 6 years after leaving public service.

We have become a government, Of the money, by the Money and for the Money, rather than a government of The People by the People and for the People.

This act would at the least slow or at best stop rampant influence peddling in Washington D.C. This act would saving the country untold amounts of money for Congressional pet earmarks. Companies could no longer be able to buy a Congressman with future job offers.
