Politico: Climate Lobbyists are a happy, incestuous

little cadre of 10 lobbying firms made up of corporate money changers and former legislators.

Democrats are getting co-opted by the big money corporate lobbyists just as surely as the Republicans were seduced. 

If, deity forbid, cap and trade ever gets passed, it will be a grab-bag of corporate corruption negotiated by this band of happy pirates. This is NOT about change, it IS about MONEY.

A new analysis of Senate disclosure records by The Center for Public Integrity found that 10 lobbying firms — all with deep ties to Capitol Hill — have amassed such large client lists that they represent nearly 100 of the business stakeholders in the legislative brawl.
