Priceless is a filmmaker’s personal journey across America to answer a burning question: why are some of our government’s most basic policies, like food and energy, so dumb…and can anything be done about it? Video will load below.
The healthcare industry, including HMOs, health professionals, hospitals, nursing homes and pharmaceuticals, contributed $825 million to candidates for federal office from 1990-2008.
Fewer than one half of one percent of Americans were responsible for eighty percent of all contributions made to candidates for federal office in 2008.
Wall Street campaign contributions to candidates for federal office increased five-fold from $60 million in 1990 to $311 million in 2008.
Since 1990, the energy industry has invested $500 million in Congressional campaign contributions, receiving government subsidies and polluting our environment at an estimated cost to taxpayers of $250 billion a year.
