Our latest Transparency is a look at how much money each U.S. senator is taking from HMOs, and how much money the HMOs are taking from their consumers. Check it out here.

Even if it were made illegal the bribes would find a way to corrupt politicians*. Anyone who wants to put a stop to this needs to realize the law can't do it, only voters can. Stop being fooled by the two-party system, stop putting incumbents back in office, and reserve your vote for a true *representative* who will sign an affidavit that he will be bound in his important actions by an online vote of his constituents or some other such device. If no such person exists then run yourself.

*remember these values are just what is declared - don't believe for a second that this graphic shows anything close to all the money or other favors used to buy these senators. and don't believe that a senator's hands are clean just because he has a 0 here.
