No offense to rodeo clowns intended.
I was trying to think of a good analogy when I read this article at The Hill, ObamaCare’s architects reap windfall as Washington lobbyists:
ObamaCare has become big business for an elite network of Washington lobbyists and consultants who helped shape the law from the inside.
More than 30 former administration officials, lawmakers and congressional staffers who worked on the healthcare law have set up shop on K Street since 2010.
Major lobbying firms such as Fierce, Isakowitz & Blalock, The Glover Park Group, Alston & Bird, BGR Group and Akin Gump can all boast an ObamaCare insider on their lobbying roster — putting them in a prime position to land coveted clients.
“When [Vice President] Biden leaned over [during healthcare signing] and said to [President] Obama, ‘This is a big f’n deal,’” said Ivan Adler, a headhunter at the McCormick Group, “he was right.”
I think the rodeo clown – mad bull analogy works.
The D.C. lobbyists, particularly those who helped build Obamacare and therefore are among the few who might understand it, can help distract the massive mad bullocracy which is getting ready to gouge any business in its path.
If you have a better analogy, go ahead.
Somewhere, Tuffy the Rodeo Clown is saying: “When you use that analogy, please add: No offense to rodeo clowns.” Done.
