These deep-pocketed enterprises play both sides of the aisle, ensuring success no matter which party is in power. The longer politicians stay in power, the deeper the special interests’ control over a politician is cemented.Congressman and senators should have no more than 12 years is Congress. This is enough time for them to represent their constituents and for the people to have a safeguard against deep special interest roots, a sort of insurance policy against lobbyists.The swamp is full of bad actors and politicians.
