Closing Thought–06Jul21

Oops! My bad!

A head honcho lobbyists at Exxon just revealed that he has 11 US Senators in his pocket and they will do as they are told in the law making process……

From an interview with Keith McCoy is a senior ExxonMobil lobbyist on Capitol Hill…

McCoy said he has 11 U.S. senators who are “crucial” in ExxonMobil’s efforts.

“Senator Shelley Moore Capito, Senator Joe Manchin, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Senator Jon Tester, Senator Maggie Hassan, Senator John Barrasso, Senator John Cornyn, Senator Steve Daines, Senator Chris Coons, Senator Mark Kelly and Senator Marco Rubio,” were all cited.

He went on to explain that the last thing they want is to appear in a public hearing before Congress where the American people can see.

“We don’t want it to be us, to have these conversations, especially in a hearing. It’s getting our associations to step in and have those conversations and answer those tough questions and be for, the lack of a better term, the whipping boy for some of these members of congress,” McCoy confessed.

There you have it…..I have always said that our elected officials care more about the cash they rake in than the country they have pledged to protect.

These gutless slugs are not alone….every major industry has an official in their pockets and controls the flow of issues in the Congress.

Time to shut down this pipeline and force the reps into working for the country and not some corporation.

  1. Lobbies in Washington suck eggs. The Folks sitting in Congress should only present “bills” which their State Legislatures favor and recommend.
