  1. Question: How much does the Executive Branch of the Federal Government (including the federal employee unions) spend on lobbying Congress and Agencies?
    Answer: Your guess is as good as anyone's. The myriad of line items does not include the salary of executives that lobby as ancillary duties, the cooperation with Hollywood for message placement, the value of the President's endorsement, etc. I am pushing 70 from the other side so I do not have time to follow the money.
