Lobbyists continue campaign in D.C.
WASHINGTON – The election may be over, but a new campaign is being waged in the nation's capital as lobbyists, advocates and trade groups fight to shape the government's response to the looming fiscal cliff.
It's a twist on the usual lobbying effort: Instead of digging for more tax dollars, they're trying to protect what they've got.
The tactics are familiar to voters who were swamped with TV commercials, newspaper ads and mailers in the frenzied months before Election Day. But this time, the effort is directed at politicians, not so much the public.
