The first thing that came to my mind was: Why do we need these lobbyists when the congressmen and women were put there to determine the best possible outcome for the entire nation/state when regarding policies. But after reading this chapter it seems to me that this idea may have to be enacted to keep certain laws tied to what Americans really want. Considering the cost benefit analysis, if the people really want a law to remain the same while a few corporations believe it's in their best interest to amend it; under the cost benefit analysis I believe a few dollars from a few million can overextend a corporations contribution margin.
Although past this thought the chapter to me seemed kind of bland in the sense that cost benefit analysis is already used quite often enough to understand. He did focus a little on how that has influenced public policy but it was short lived.
