Another politico complaining about rules reform, Martin Gold -- a lobbyist for Covington and Burling who represents Qualcomm, BP, Amazon.com, BAE Systems, the Principality of Liechtenstein, among others -- told Investor's Business Daily recently that rules reform is "unprecedented and unwise."
Gold's somber warning about reform contrasts pretty sharply with the giddy language used to describe a government affairs seminar he led in 2011. The American League of Lobbyists promoted the event with the following language: "Can you turn Congressional rules and procedures into a tactical advantage for achieving your policy goals? Absolutely!"
The National Rifle Association is one of the most powerful lobbying groups in Washington. See how the organization helps the gun industry reap even greater profits following gun-violence tragedies.
