The Lobbyocracy Explained

Amazing fact from WaPo:

In a remarkable illustration of the power of lobbying in Washington, a study released last week found that a single tax break in 2004 earned companies $220 for every dollar they spent on the issue -- a 22,000 percent rate of return on their investment.

Somehow I doubt the average American gets that return on his 42-cent postage stamp.
