Apparently, one of the best investments corporate America could make right now is to make a campaign contribution to John McCain, or to hire one of the many lobbyists working for his campaign,” commented David Donnelly, director of Campaign Money Watch. “But regular Americans can’t afford to hire a lobbyist like Charlie Black or Rick Davis, or to make a $2,300 contribution. Perhaps that’s why McCain’s tax plan is so skewed to help corporate America.”
McCain has received $5,590,003 from the employees and Political Action Committees (PACs) of the Fortune 200 since 1989. These same 200 companies have paid $98,693,835 to lobbyists connected to the McCain campaign since 1998.
