The legislative process is like a father taking his awkward, embarrassed teenage boy to a whorehouse to get laid for the first time. Congress is the whorehouse. Congresspeople are the whores. Lobbyists are the father, who is paying the whores to fuck somebody other than himself.
We, the people, of course, are the unwilling teenager nervously asking the whores if it would be OK if we just talked.
