Capitol Commentary with U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack

Congressman Dave Loebsack -- CROPPEDU.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack
Iowa’s Second Congressional District

In light of the recent scandal involving a former Speaker of the House, now is the time for Congress to act in order to begin restoring the American people’s trust in their legislators.‚Äč

What do you think?

Should we ban former representatives and senators from leveraging their positions in Congress for high-paid DC lobbying jobs?
