As the House and Senate near passage of health care reform legislation, it’s instructive to look at just how much the insurance and HMO's industries poured into fighting it.

 

According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, the industries hired 2,049 lobbyists in 2009, spent $236,818,380 on lobbying and $18,992,097 on campaign contributions. That amounts to more than a quarter billion -- $255,810,497 to be precise — the insurance industries spent to influence Congress and the White House in 2009. More astounding, that’s $700,851 per day, holidays, weekends included.
