I support H.R. 440 ("to extend the post-employment restrictions on lobbying by Members of Congress and officers and employees") because...unfortunately most members of Congress (House and Senate) are spineless and mercinary and can be influenced by lobbiests (when the only people by which they should be influenced is US the citiens of their states or districts).

I support H.R. 440 ("to extend the post-employment restrictions on lobbying by Members of Congress and officers and employees"). Personally, I believe lobbying should be outlawed.

I support H.R. 440 ("to extend the post-employment restrictions on lobbying by Members of Congress and officers and employees") because... Members of Congress & goverment officers plus goverment employees already have a life-time retirement income and as such why would/should We The People who pay their paychecks already pay them for doing just what they are doing now. It's called 'double-dipping' & if We the People tryed to do it We The People would be off to jail.
