    Senators are cheap in comparison.

    And the returns are astounding. For less than 1/4 million dollars, Amgen gets $500 million? That's a 2000-fold return on investment.

    Disney spent less than a million getting Sonny Bono to sponsor the repeal of copyright expiration, from which Disney is making billions.

    How much did Rick Perry get for plugging the HPV vaccine? (It's a good idea anyway, but still.)

    I expect some corruption, but I'm astounded at how cheap our elected representatives are.
