Lobbyists run the country

To the Editor:

Forget President [Barack] Obama and Katherine Sebelius. Do you realize who is really running this country, the USA? They are the all-powerful lobbyists in D.C. and in that surrounding area.

I can take you into McLean, Va., and show you where they live in $5,000,000 to $10,000,000 houses supported and owned by the many insurance companies, corporations and unions, with their garages full of “gifts” to give away to politicians for their vote.

[Terry] McAuliffe and [Dick] Cheney are some of the politicians living among the powerful lobbyists in McLean.

How can we get rid of this cancer of lobbyists? Congress and Senate will never vote to redeem us of this plague.
