    American People Hire High-Powered Lobbyist To Push Interests In Congress | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

    WASHINGTON—Citing a desire to gain influence in Washington, the American people confirmed Friday that they have hired high-powered D.C. lobbyist Jack Weldon of the firm Patton Boggs to help advance their agenda in Congress.

    Known among Beltway insiders for his ability to sway public policy on behalf of massive corporations such as Johnson & Johnson, Monsanto, and AT&T, Weldon, 53, is expected to use his vast network of political connections to give his new client a voice in the legislative process

    Weldon is reportedly charging the American people $795 an hour.

    Good gig if you can get it. The American people are getting off cheap at two million a year imo.

    Screw you "American People"!

    We're in charge now! You elected our people to Congress! You allowed Congress to get fat off of our campaign finance and cash payments! YOU continue to do nothing while we have completely secured your... no...OUR government to carry out our agenda. Good luck finding your pathetic, fat, lazy, distracted middle class again! Every once in a while we hear grumblings from you losers about an ammendment that will restrict our status as inclusion in the definition of "The People". HA, HA, HA!

    Sincerely,

    The North American Corporate Union
    (That's right. We changed the name. What are you going to do about it?)
