With stories ranging from the drafting and unintended consequences of the 401k section to a lobbyist-engineered $2 billion stockpile of Tamiflu, the discussion illuminates the intricate dynamics between lawmakers, lobbyists, and the electorate. Mullins and Tanner also dive into changes in the political landscape, including the shifting reliance on corporate PAC money and its implications for future legislative priorities.

    Corporations wouldn’t lobby if government didn’t have the power to give them anything. The corps goal is to make money and what better way than to make money from gov. It’s no coincidence the richest counties surround DC
