Swampland commenters are constantly exhorting me on the link between health industry campaign contributions and the difficulties that health reform is having getting through Congress. There is indeed a lot of money being lavished on the key players in this fight, and there is a lot of good reporting being done on that. There should be, because special-interest money is indeed an influence in this debate.
But does campaign money that explain it all? As with everything else about the health care debate, it’s not quite that simple, FactCheck.org tells us.
