Isn't an ethics waiver just a legal way of saying, " we see no evil in direct and obvious conflicts of interest, we hear no evil in direct and obvious conflicts of interest....?
Cheney did this in 2001, with his invitation for Oil & Gas CEOs to basically write policy and bills, regulating themselves. Nice work if you can get it.

This is bipartisanship at its worst, of course, because it picks winners and losers without the electorate getting to weigh in.

You have to understand that The UniParty will steal everything that's not nailed down. Under the false guise of " all stakeholders being at the table ".
This policy is akin to a just convicted embezzler negotiating with the judge on the terms of his sentencing and restitution. And, borrowing more money from the victims to pay them back for their losses.
Again, nice work if you can get it.
