MYTHBUSTER: DEMOCRATS LOVE LOBBYISTS, TOO
Politico reports that 12 “Democratic Senators spent this past weekend in Miami Beach raising money from top lobbyists for oil, drug, and other corporate interests that they often decry.”

Democrats – The Party of the Poor? Think again!
This event in Miami Beach is another proof that Democrats also have strong ties to lobbyists and special interest groups. Democrats love to promulgate the myth that the Democrat Party is the party of the poor and that the Republican Party is the party of the rich and big business. Democrats constantly demonize big business and lobbyists. But those are only smoke screens to fool uninformed voters: Democrats love the money from the capitalists they claim to hate so much.
