ABSTRACT
This article deals with the negative reaction of British lobbyists to U.S. President Barack Obama's crackdown on lobbyists. Rules were established by Obama that prevent lobbyists from calling or meeting government employees to discuss projects related to the economic stimulus package. According to Obama, lobbyists can submit written comments instead of takign part in any meetings or phone calls. Open Road Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Graham McMillan describes these restrictions as perverse.
