As the Congress takes up health care reform, it’s imperative that we citizens watch for the influence of money and lobbying on the debate. On Wednesday at 12:00 noon (Eastern Time), the Center for Responsive Politics will be hosting a live Web chat on the outside forces that are trying to influence what Congress comes up with. Sheila Krumholz, CRP’s director, Dave Levinthal, communications director and writers Lindsay Renick Mayer, Michael Beckel and Aaron Kiersh will be fielding questions and comments. Details on the Web chat can be found here.
When it comes to following the money that’s flowing to power on Capitol Hill, no one does it better than CRP. Their “Diagnosis: Reform” blog posts series is a great resource to get caught up and follow the action. You can see a listing of past posts here.
