American Fedn of State, County & Municipal Employees $42,883,511
National Assn of Realtors $36,749,493
Goldman Sachs $32,660,452

National Education Assn $30,812,330
Laborers Union $29,629,800
Service Employees International Union $28,659,682
It isn't just those nasty corporations that are buying Congress. 7 of the top 10 are either unions, trial lawyers, or big pocket individual Dems.
Seems like AT&T has to spend big bucks just to level the playing field.
I thought the NRA would have been on that list.
