Corporate Lobbying & Liberty

I was reading in Science about how Obama's 2013 budget for STEM education, pure and applied research, and government agencies like FDA, NIH, NSF, NOAA, and the US Geological Survey (earthquake warnings) were all getting their funding cut (they're all things the USA apparently doesn't need, and are "killing jobs" when we should be letting the jobs do the killing), but Republican law makers would likely reduce it even more than what the President's budget proposes, and then I saw this image later int he day... and things aligned in my head correctly.  Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200... unless you're a congressman going to lunch with a lobbyist for a major corporation or trade industry.
