Lobbying is a major issue across the world especially in Nations like the United States where it leads to corrupt laws like FOSTA or corrupt trade deals like the TPP. Shot this is one reason why we can't get any decent gun laws in the United States, even with all the mass shootings one after another because of money in politics AKA lobbying they'll never pass universal background checks for firearms or break up big monopolies such as the cable ISPs. With money in politics governments remain complacent to corruption. I guess it's all I have to say right now about that. But what's your two cents?

Good luck getting money out of politics. The only way to do it is remove free will.

A group is needed to lobby to stop lobbying.

The real answer is to have HONEST politicians and not the money hungry clowns who take money from businesses to vote in a certain way.  They don't care about the people who they are supposed to represent, just the companies who will give them money to influence their voting in congress.   Many have become old, senile and very, very rich but the name recognition is what gets them into office at the polls.  This process needs to stop as the fossils don't represent the much younger voters who are the ones who need to take over the reins.
