I was horrified to read that Congressman Capuano opposes the extension of the "revolving door" provision from 1 year to 2. We need to increase that gap so that former congressmen do not retain a strong set of contacts to engage in undue and improper influence with their colleagues.
We cannot accept his assertion that his political career is solely designed to improve his post-House earnings.
The electors of the 8th District of Massachusetts sent Congressman Capuano to Washington to do his best for our country, our state, and our district -- not what is best for Mike Capuano.
