Senator Baucus backed heavily by health interests

Senator Baucus backed heavily by health interests

By MIKE DENNISON IR State Bureau - 06/14/2009


As Sen. Max Baucus has taken the lead on health-care reform legislation in the U.S. Senate, he’s also become a leader in something else: Campaign money received from health- and insurance-industry interests.

In the past six years, nearly one-fourth of every dime raised by Baucus, D-Mont., and his political-action committee has come from groups and individuals associated with drug companies, insurers, hospitals, medical-supply firms, health-service companies and other health professionals.

These donations total about $3.4 million, or $1,500 a day, from January 2003 through 2008....
