Money makes the world go 'round and we'd be naive to think lawmakers aren't the least bit swayed by the power of a dollar (or millions). Lobbyists invest in political contributions in hopes of keeping their special interests safe from whatever is happening on the Hill. This is especially true now, with the 12-person panel in charge of finding ways to cut the federal deficit. K Street groups figure if they put money into these lawmakers now, they'll reap the rewards later. Janie Lorber, from Roll Call's investigative unit, tracks the money from special interest groups all the way to Capitol HIll.
