ABSTRACT
The article argues against lobbying in the U.S. Congress. No honest legislator who does his work conscientiously fears any lobbyist. In fact, the lobbyist knows better than to approach such a legislator. If the legislators are busy doing their work according to their conscience, they have no time to fear the lobbyist. Infact, the real lobbyists are paid big fees by big interests and their base of operations is back home near the post of command. No lobbying law will be able to reach them. They work under cover and will not register, law or no law. Their contact is directly with the political bosses.
