The difference between Democrats and Republicans

When it comes to the revolving door on K Street, it's small, but nonetheless it exists:
A spokesman for the association declined to comment on the departure. So did Mr. Feehery, who now runs his own lobbying shop. But he said Republican lobbyists would always be in demand because Democrats lack the stomach to push for industry goals that go against their party, like rolling back environmental regulations.

“At the end of the day,” Mr. Feehery said, “Democrats don’t like to ask for the order” — the client’s objective.
Meaning that Democrats have a slight edge when it comes to conscience. They still take the money but at least they hestitate for a moment before selling out the interests of the people on behalf of the Corporatocracy.
