Boston Globe, Part III
Here is Part III of the Boston Globe's series on special interest influence in Washington. The title, "Medicare bill a study in D.C. spoils system," is tame compared to what really went down. The piece, by Christopher Rowland, is an exhaustive review of the lobbying particularly around funding for teaching, community and rural hospitals. But it is a little light on the long and substantial investments in campaign cash from the insurance and pharamceutical industries. Still worth a read.
