Posting this article for all the people (you know who you are and I know you're lurking) who said I was crazy. It took a while, but finally - voila! Sweet vindication!
"ObamaCare has become big business for an elite network of Washington lobbyists and consultants who helped shape the law from the inside.
More than 30 former administration officials, lawmakers and congressional staffers who worked on the healthcare law have set up shop on K Street since 2010.
Major lobbying firms such as Fierce, Isakowitz & Blalock, The Glover Park Group, Alston & Bird, BGR Group and Akin Gump can all boast an ObamaCare insider on their lobbying roster — putting them in a prime position to land coveted clients.
“When [Vice President] Biden leaned over [during healthcare signing] and said to [President] Obama,‘This is a big f'n deal,’” said Ivan Adler, a headhunter at the McCormick Group,“he was right.”
Veterans of the healthcare push are now lobbying for corporate giants such as Delta Airlines, UPS, BP America and Coca-Cola, and for healthcare companies including GlaxoSmithKline, UnitedHealth Group and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association."

Does this surprise anyone? Like politicians, lobbyists work for then profit what they pushed.
What is a joke is that anyone expects Washington to clean itself up. People go there to make millions all the while its citizens are at each others throat because there is little hope and/or $.
The people instead of arguing amongst themselves should be raising hell with those they voted for demanding change.
It is only a matter of time until the government I learned about in school being represented by its people is only a memory.
