With Democrats in control, lobbying expenditures rise 5%

I don't this is the kind of change people were hoping for...

Last year saw a more than 5 percent increase in lobbying expenditures as compared to 2008, said a new report released Friday by the Center for Responsive Politics, a campaign finance watchdog.

More than $3.47 billion was spent on lobbying in 2009, about $170 million more than in 2008, according to the watchdog%u2019s analysis.
