Yes, I like the concept. But make it the length of one term for that official rather than 5 years.

No, eliminate the ban all-together as many previous politicians can be seen as experienced advice givers in political situations and lawmaking

No, but people should not be allowed to lobby if they are receiving taxpayer money for their organization. Anyone should be allowed to advocate for their beliefs with their own money, not with federal funds.

There should be an absolute ban, not just a limited time one. I would also consider an absolute ban on lobbyists being allowed to hold appointed political office (e.g. Cabinet Secretaries, senior positions in government agencies).

No, regardless of their previous employment, banning someone's right to advocate for political beliefs is unlawful.

Yes, it should be until the next president is out of office, so the immediate elections are not unfairly supported.

Depends on their leadership. Yes if someone like John McCain or No if someone like Ronald Reagan.

No opinion. I am not educated well enough on the topic to form an opinion.

There should be no ban because it is a limitation on free speech.

@9LVBQ64Peace and Freedom from Minnesota answered…2yrs

No, the ban should be equivalent to whatever the term length in the office the politician was serving in.

@9LJ8JCVRepublican from North Carolina answered…2yrs

Yes, however there must be a focus on the corruption of lobbying so that lobbying does not become permanently banned.

Lobbying of any kind should be limited to groups with immediate concerns and not monetary or sectarian agendas.
