Health sector has donated millions to lawmakers

Washington Post, March 9, 2009
Health insurers and drug makers have showered members of the 111th Congress with millions in campaign contributions over the last four years, with a special focus on leaders who will play major roles in shaping healthcare legislation, according to a study. Health insurers and their employees contributed $2.2 million to the top 10 recipients in the House and Senate since 2005, while drug makers and their employees gave more than $3.3 million to top lawmakers during that period, according to an analysis of federal elections data by California-based advocacy group Consumer Watchdog.
