Members of Congress need to put the interest of Americans ahead of special interest groups, and that becomes a lot harder when they’ve got former colleagues lobbying on behalf of those interests. Former members of Congress should be banned from lobbying.
When a lawmaker’s time serving their constituents in Congress comes to an end, they shouldn’t be prohibited from lobbying their former colleagues. It’s unfair to restrict their future employment opportunities, especially when they have specialized knowledge.
