The Baltimore Sun has an editorial today on the battle in Congress over health care reform and the role that big money will play in the outcome. The editorial cites a recently released report by Common Cause.
The report, "Legislating Under the Influence," found that health care interests are spending $1.4 million per day lobbying Congress. About $94 million went to congressional candidates in the last election cycle alone, with much of it going to the members serving on committees and subcommittees that oversee reforms.
