“Why Lobbying Is Washington’s Best Bargain; Lobbyists say for just a few million, they can make clients billions:”

“Lobbyists [are] the best bargain in Washington. Capitol Tax Partners,
for example, is one of 1,900 firms that house more than 11,000 lobbyists

of $3.49 billion for unraveling the mysteries of the tax code for a
variety of businesses."
