The vast majority of staffers in DC are little more than in house lobbyists.
The left-wing government/media complex.
Must have been a helluva pay cut
I would disagree.

It destroys fair trade.
True, but it's a revolving door between govt and the "private" sector. They're smart enough to realize over a long period, the average dough will be awesome.

1979-1993 Senate Armed Services Committee professional staffer
1994-2004 John McCain’s legislative director
2000-2011 Lockheed Martin VP
2011-2012 Ann Elise Sauer LLC (lobbying firm)
2012-present Senate Armed Services Committee Republican staff director

They have a promo for $39 that include U-verse (18 Mbps), basic TV, and HBO for 12 months.
I've had it with Comcast/MSNBC.
