Lawmakers reveal healthcare investments
Washington Post, June 15, 2009
Almost 30 key lawmakers helping draft landmark healthcare legislation have financial holdings in the industry, totaling nearly $11 million worth of personal investments. The list of members who have personal investments in the corporations that will be affected by the legislation includes Congress's most powerful leaders and a bipartisan collection of lawmakers in key committee posts. Their total healthcare holdings could be worth $27 million, because congressional financial disclosure forms require reporting of only broad ranges of holdings rather than precise values of assets.
