Aetna and New York Life Insurance are among the largest givers of cash to Sen. Olympia Snowe.

She claims that buckets of money do not influence her decision against Single payer or the public option.

So what is she saying .. "it's just as easy to say no for $10 million as it is to say no for free?"

Oh.. now I understand. This is not even the Onion.. this is our real life Congress in action.

1. What the hell do those people do with all that money-put it in a Swiss bank account?
They are getting filthy rich with all the legislation they provide for their corporate sponsors.

8. The pay for their horrendously expensive campaigns for reelection.
Up to $10M. We have to get money out of politics, it's the root of our problems. Naive concept, I know, but until we have an alternative to the current campaign financing model, the problem's only going to get worse.

2. There is a good way to prove you haven't been bought.
Vote for the people and against the corporations. You swore you would when you took office.

9. Well,it should be very easy to prove it.
All they have to do is refund the money, and get down to the people's business.
