I've heard of the lobbying effort before but had no idea the extent to which it wields change in government and encourages to me anyway legal corruption. These people bombard our so called representatives with they wants and also remind politicians of the monies contributed by the organizations they represent which mostly corporations whose interests don't usually jibe with those of the average citizen. This is how a bill such as the medicare drug plan gets passed with Medicare not being able to negotiate prices which already has cost taxpayers over a billion dollars and enriched the coffers of the greedy pharmaceutical industry and those politicians that saw to it the legislation was passed with that restriction.
I do believe the average understands the impact of lobbying efforts and contributions.
