Senator In Charge of Healthcare Bill Receives Most Money From Industry

Unsurprisingly, the Montana Standard reports:

Now, a new article in the Montana Standard finds Senator Baucus has received more campaign money from health and insurance industry interests than any other member of Congress. The article says, "In the past six years, nearly one-fourth of every dime raised by Baucus and his political-action committee has come from groups and individuals associated with drug companies, insurers, hospitals, medical-supply firms, health-service companies and other health professionals.”

I love privately funded elections, don't you? Although there are alternatives.
