Who Owns Congress? A Campaign Cash Seating Chart
What if members of Congress were seated not by party but according to their major business sponsors? We gave it a try.

2. Reid is the only one who accepted money from comanies
that support his state --Gambling. While not right - since this business runs his state you could say he is looking out for his state.

4. Why does Labor give so much to House members, but not much
to the Senate?

5. I have always said congress should be like NASCAR
and the congress critter needs to wear the logo's of the companies that are giving him money ....

on a serious note ... I believe the best campaign finance reform is this ...
1. no limit on what a person can give .

2. within 24 hours of accepting the money ... the congressperson or candidate MUST show
on his website who gave how much .... and if it is a PAC or organization a link to their website ...

I believe this would clean up a lot of BS ....

ok putting on a fire retardant suit ..... flame away ....
