Meet the new boss, same as the…

…old boss. Republicans are out. Democrats are in. Lobbyists adjust. So we are told in the article “As Guard Changes in Congress, Lobbyists Scramble” from the NY Times.

Politics will be a bit cleaner for a while, but then the system will do what it does to most and power will continue to corrupt. Few evil people, many susceptible ones.

Minor changes will be made to the system. Ways around those changes will be found. Until 1) the tax structure is simplified and 2) electoral campaigns are awash with “clean money”, the boss will remain the same.
