Summary: Franken proposes a law banning former members of Congress from becoming lobbyists.
Script Of "No Wonder" (TV)
AL FRANKEN: In Washington, they debate whether former members of Congress should wait one year or two years before they can become registered lobbyists. How about never?
Right now, hundreds of former senators and congressmen are lobbying for Big Oil and special interests. No wonder gas is at $4 a gallon.
I'm Al Franken. In Washington, I'll fight for a new law to prevent members of Congress from ever becoming lobbyists.
Something's got to change, and that's why I approve this message.
