News just out. The non-partisan OpenSecrets.org blog reported that spending by federally registered political lobbyists has collapsed by 41 percent, to its lowest level in a decade plummeting from $3,148,541,860 in 2016 to just $1,865,987 in 2017.
This is the latest sign that President Donald Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp” seems by getting the money out of politics seems to be happening.
Imagine that, a political leader who actually does what he says. Imagine a political leader who won’t change the law because some rich powerful interest will
bribe him contribute to his reelection fund.
I am in awe of how good President Trump is turning out to be.
