Lobbying Works!

No big suprise:

"The companies that spend more, tend to outperform"

"...many companies now actually view their lobbying expenditures along the same lines as R&D (research and development) or equipment spending."

It has become business as usual to pay off politicians to succeed in business...

This has been well known for years, it's not news. Costs money to pay the people who actually write the legislation our "representatives" vote on without even reading it.
