Dem. senators spent weekend with bank, energy, tobacco lobbyists

Politico reports:

Twelve Democratic Senators spent last weekend in Miami Beach raising money from top lobbyists for oil, drug, and other corporate interests that they often decry, according to a guest list for the event obtained by POLITICO.

I love the commentary by DSCC Chairman Robert Menendez:

“In the upcoming elections, voters will face a choice between Republicans who are standing with Wall Street fat cats, bankers and insurance companies — or Democrats who are working hard to clean up the mess we inherited by putting the people’s interests ahead of the special interests,” Menendez said in a press release last Wednesday.


You have to love these guys.

Apparently its only fascism when republicans suck corporate wang for loots.

Some more:

The Miami beach fundraiser guest list, to which a DSCC spokesman didn’t immediately have a reaction, was a standard, corporate-heavy event that both parties have long used for high-dollar fundraising. Other guests included lobbyists for two Indian tribes, for McDonalds, for beer and wine sellers, Ford, and a small handful of advocacy groups, including the gay group Human Rights Campaign.

Now the really disturbing part in all of this is that McDonalds feels the need to have corporate lobbyists in DC.

I mean come on.

Our sick twisted criminal government is acting so outrageously outside of its constitutional bounds that fast food corporations feel the need lobby the political tyrants for public loots and favorable regulations (typically at the detriment of their competition).

Whatever party is in power is going to rob the people, suck down corporate campaign contributions, and enact socialist legislation to buy votes at the expense of the few.    Democrat or republican, as this article points out, doesn’t matter.  They are all a bunch of treasonous scum sucking tyrants.
