Congress on Sale! Politicians Put Their Mouths Where Their Money Is. - The List - Part V

08/21/2009 11:31 am ET Updated May 25, 2011

Unlike those Congresspeople in Part IV, these Representatives take modest $10,000 to $25,000 from health-care-related special interests. This and the final group are really as interesting as the ones who take millions, because they will weigh into the debate on the health care reform bill largely with the input of their constituency and their own personal beliefs. If you wonder whether the official running the town hall meeting has an agenda relative to their own fund-raising, you are apt to get more service, and less lip-service from those less beholding to big donors.

The last group is the Gold list, and often surprising group of political freaks who seem to have their fundraising pockets largely sewn up when it comes to health care reform special interest groups.
