Key Senators to Imprint Health Care Reform

Senators Max Baucus (D-MT) and Kent Conrad (D-ND) will have a huge say on health care reform. Both senators accept donations from for-profit health care companies with no, as in zero, facilities in their state. Max accepted over $230,000 in donations from 31 of the 32 corporate PACs, while Kent took $127,000 from 26. Three companies in the above list have ties to Nancy-Ann DeParle, the White House Health Czar. She served on the board of DaVita, Triad and a company acquired by Medco. How will for-profit healthcare benefit in reform? They have key operatives watching their back.
