    I actually think representatives should make MORE money but be barred from from joining any companies after their service within an industry that they are casting votes on.
    Warm feelings guy!

    Hard to argue with this.

    I agree. Perhaps, in addition to the legislation we are already working

    on together to ban Members of Congress from becoming lobbyists, we can

    team up here as well. A simple, clean bill making birth control available over the counter.

    Interested?


    This is getting interesting.


    How much will they do and how far will they go ?

    Birth control should be over the counter. I remember the dems shutting down that idea in 2015.

    Banning lobbying unconstitutional

    last I checked this is the second half of 2019.
    Not 2015.

    Obama is no longer the President ---

    like a recalcitrant child

    Is banning lobbying unconstitutional ?
    Not that that is anyone's agenda

    FWIW, Democratic opposition to that bill hinged on insurance coverage for contraception, not opposition to the idea of birth control being OTC.
