Too much credit given to Congressmen
Reader comment on: That's Not the Spirit
Submitted by King Wiemann (United States), Feb 8, 2012 17:19
In my (limited) understanding of how things work in Washington, Congressmen actually do very little of the actual writing of bills and have very little knowledge of the intricacies they create. Complaining that they, after leaving congress, sell their services to "... advise [...] on how to either comply with it or legally get around it" misses the mark. The only ones who could probably sell that service and perform to those terms would be the staffers. It is more likely that the congressmen are selling their influence and their contacts than their actual skills.
