The failures of capitalism have their rewards.

More than 2,000 companies and municipalities have hired lobbyists since the election

The Washington Post reports that more than 2,000 companies, municipalities and associations have hired D.C. Lobbyists since the Nov. election. “We’re busy as bees out here,” says one trade association. “Making honey.”
