How does this look bad for him?
He has made 1/48th what Obama did from the same group, and Congressman Wilson has served 8 years as opposed to Obama's 5.
Per the same source, Obama received $12,075,383 as the junior senator from Illinois.
So if we work it out, Senator Obama made $2,415,076.60 per year as opposed to Congressman Wilson's $31,250 per year.
Now who is REALLY
in the pocket of the healthcare industry?
EDIT TO ADD:
Oops, I miscalculated a little. I was only counting contributions from healthcare professionals.
Once you add in those from hospitals and pharmaceutical companies, Congressman Wilson's grand total comes to $398,346 or $49,793.25 per
Senator Obama's grand total comes to $15,553,452, which averages out to $3,110,690.40 per year.
Note: that shows no contributions to Obama from pharmaceutical companies. I don't know if he has received any, but it doesn't list him as having
done so, which seems odd considering the volume of contributions from the other fields.
But hey, that's just the facts, they don't mean a thing, right?
