WASHINGTON -- Rose and Zine Hosein have stand-up jobs - and get paid $15 an hour for it. The 60-something couple have the ultimate niche occupation in Washington's influence economy, holding places in line for lobbyists outside crowded congressional hearing rooms. They bring folding chairs, coffee and patience to a job regarded by some about as highly as the influence brokers who hire them. Their days can start before 3 a.m., leaving them to wait - sometimes outdoors - for six or more hours. They take off after turning over their spot in line to their customers, and the hearing-room doors swing open. Finding elbow room is up to them.


This is sickening. I am strongly against lobbying, Congress should not work for special interest groups. And if those lobbyist are really passionate about their cause then they should stand up at 3 am to queue like everybody else, not use their corrupt wealth to hire the sheeple to do the job for them!

It just illustrates the Elitist-new aristocracy attitude of the rich lobbyists.
"just hire some peasants for a nickle, and they will labour thy lands"

I do think politics would be greatly helped if those oodles of lobbyists would be given an apron, so they can clean hospitals and schools, now THAT is the only thing they are useful for..
Best bit of it? They wouldn't need brooms and such, because they are só experienced at licking up to congress, their tongues are the size of cleaning-mops already....

(I you already hadn't guessed, I am sick&tired of the unbridled power of the money of big corporations via their lobbyists)
