Top Bailout Recipients Spent $71 Million On Lobbying In Year Since Bailout

Twenty-five top recipients of government bailout funds spent more than $71 million on lobbying in the year since they were rescued, an extensive review of federal lobbying records by the Huffington Post reveals.

A year after taxpayers forked over $700 billion to help rescue the biggest names in banking, insurance and the automotive industry, those same institutions are using portions of the cash to influence legislation with a direct impact on taxpayers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Ahem). Why is this money not going back to We the People, whose taxpayer dollars bailed out these institutions which were allegedly "...too big to fail"?!?

Oh, I forgot; we're irrelevant to Congress, except for their wanting ever more of our tax dollars.

Never mind; nothing to see here.
