Congress on Sale! Saints of the Hill Who Take Less Than $20,000 in Health Care $$ - The List - Part VI

In the last part of Congress on Sale! we look at those representatives who take little or no special interest money from groups and high-dollar individuals in the health care reform debate. Ron Paul ($3,000) or Rep. Dennis Kucinich ($1,250) will be more independent voices.

While they land on either side of the fence on the issue, and it contains many Blue Dog Democrats who will ride the fence, these are some of the most interesting players in the unfolding health care reform drama.
