This is a great infographic on Lobbying. Any thoughts?

    I have a different view on Lobbying now since a huge part of my job is supporting a Political Action Comittee. Not all lobbyists are bad or have bad intentions. We want things to work well for consumers so Realtors can sell their houses and find them for buyers. It is so ridiculously hard right now to buy or sell. People want houses and Realtors want to make a living. It benefit's everyone except the greedy businesses trying to make more $$ off people while killing the market by making it impossible for people to get homes.

    There are good guy lobbyists out there, like Dwayne, in the infographic. I don't think that all lobbyists are bad people, however, this spreads light on how infrastructure supports corruption.
