Chances of Health Care Reform: Check Out This List

I found this interesting. It was on some far-left (the author called himself progressive, but he was way off the spectrum) blog, and it’s a list of who’s received the most in campaign donations from the insurance industry, to wit:

John McCain (R-AZ) $2,799,156
Barack Obama (D-IL) $2,184,670
Chris Dodd (D-CT) $2,138,446
Earl Pomeroy (Blue Dog-ND) $1,735,356
Charlie Rangel (D-NY) $1,346,785
Ben Nelson (D-NE) $1,185,299
Max Baucus (D-MT) $1,171,363
Joe Lieberman (I-CT) $1,033,802
Arlen Specter (R-PA) $1,007,130
Chuck Schumer (D-NY) $943,400
Mitch McConnell (R-KY) $918,007

Said author also reports that, since 1990, insurers have donated $309,549,407, 63% of it to Republicans. Interesting since most of the people on the top-ten list are Democrats.

I’ll take this guy’s word for it even though he didn’t list any sources for this information. On its surface, the list does appear accurate, name-wise anyway.
