Siroto has a little piece on the K Street Dems and the pressure by the business community.
The Sanders section targeting the business community now is drawing corporate lobbyists into the fight. Under the provision, a bipartisan commission would be created and charged with tracking the amount of political donations pharmaceutical companies and aligned trade associations made in the two years leading up to passage of a new prescription drug program for seniors, a program that was designed with heavy input from the industry.

It looks like Sander’s reform is making its way to the House. You remember the first 100 hours don’t you, well Sanders thought the Dems were serious about ending corruption. I would say the Sanders section is on the moderate side, he just wants to track donations from drug companies and trade association for up to two years prior to a vote. Nothing big hear, just your basic open, transparent government.
