The healthcare industry is spending upwards of $1.4 million each day on average to lobby members of Congress on health care legislation, a report issued by Common Cause this week reveals.

Industry spending has nearly doubled since 2000. Healthcare interests contributed $94 million to Congress members during the 2008 election cycle alone — up from $40 million in 2000.

And that's just the healthcare industry.

More evidence of buying favor

Man, this crap has GOT to stop.

So, they'll go bankrupt lobbying congress, then when they float the new healthplan, they will of course need bailed out, since they spent all their money on making sure it passed. A couple weeks will go by and they will still be in the red and a couple weeks later Obama will be the CEO of all the companies involved.

How better to have govt. sponsored healthcare than to just have them OWN it all?

nuts.
