    This is one of the Bills Obama was suggesting to get to his desk for signing, in his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

    Next the Congress should send him a bill limiting the revolving door from politics into lobbying to NEVER !! LOL !! Well at least to 5 years would be helpful.

    Having worked for Government Housing Programs under HUD, I couldn't rent any of my apartments through any HUD or State of VA Housing Programs for 5 years after retiring. Why shouldn't such a standard be in place for Congressmen who stand to benefit from their 'connections' far more than most of us prior Government Housing workers.
