What the heck is the purpose of an executive order if Obama turns around a few days later and goes against his very own order? That’s exactly what happened, and it’s absolutely baffling.
Obama’s ethics rule in his own words:
…represents a clean break from business as usual. As of today, lobbyists will be subject to stricter limits than under any uh under any other administration in history. If you are a lobbyist entering my administration you will not be able to work on matters you lobbied on or in the agencies you lobbied during the previous two years.
Wait, not so fast.
The Obama administration has given an ethics waiver for Bill Lynn, a Defense Department nominee who is a former lobbyist.
Why this is worse than your Treasury Secretary not paying all of his taxes.
This isn’t change! It’s MORE of the same.
