Re "Lobbying law can't halt revolving door on Hill" (Page A7, Feb. 2): Federal ethics rules are intended to limit lobbying by former senior officials within one year after they leave the government.
Yet even after the ethics rules were revised in 2007 following a lobbying scandal, more than 1,650 congressional aides have registered to lobby within a year of leaving Capitol Hill, according to an analysis by The New York Times republished in The Bee.
This situation indicates that Congress, and staff members are more interested in their own self-interests, and money, than they are in serving the people. No wonder that Congress has a lower approval rating than the belly of a snake.
