    What, the nefarious NRA is not in the top 10? I'm shocked. To hear MSNBC, CNN, and other media outlets, you'd think that they controlled the Congress.

  2. Hamilcar Barca says:

    I also expected the NRA to be near the top. However, I think one of their biggest weapons is their voting power. Battles are won in the primaries and I think primary voters are mostly people who are angry. The NRA could have a significant effect, voting as a block, in any primary.

    The Health Care Industry is well represented, I see.

    I'm surprised the lobbying industry has not yet lobbied for legislation to prohibit the disclosure of this sort of information. Haven't got around to it yet, I guess.

    This is just the first quarter of 2015. If you google NRA lobbying you'll find that they spend an enormous amount.
