I mentioned last month that there is a pretty clear correlation between how House members voted on health care reform and how much money they've received from health and insurance industry donors.
South Dakota's Blue Dog Congresswoman has previously stated she finds the suggestion that votes are swayed by campaign donations is just "Ridiculous!"
SHS probably thinks this chart from stats guru Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight is ridiculous, too:
Silver ran these numbers back in June and concluded that big money from the insurance industry had a strong chance of derailing the public insurance option, a plan for which poll after poll finds big majority support among Americans. Go figure.
