House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) has raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions since his appointment to the deficit-reduction supercommittee in August. Camp raised $705,000 in the third quarter of 2011, more than $475,000 of it after receiving an appointment to the supercommittee on Aug. 10, according to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission. The healthcare industry provided Camp’s biggest source of funds. Healthcare companies and lobbyists hired to represent them gave Camp’s personal re-election fund at least $55,000 since his appointment to the supercommittee, according to fundraising data filed with the FEC.The supercommittee will likely make significant cuts to government healthcare spending if it reaches agreement on a deficit-reduction package by its Nov. 23 deadline. As chairman of the Ways and Means panel, Camp has jurisdiction over Medicare and Medicaid. Camp also received contributions for oil companies, which may lose tens of billions of dollars in federal tax breaks. Democrats have repeatedly demanded their elimination, most recently in the first version of the American Jobs Act.

Editorial : I would give you his web/our web-site, but, he only takes e-mail from his District#4-Michigan constituents ! Let me see, he is representing ME/YOU on the SUPERCOMMITTEE but you can`t e-mail him...but, you can phone his office in Washington DC. And you wonder why the American people are fed up ? Have you seen the protesters in New York and across the country ? Frustrated, Fed up, Cynical ? You Bet`Cha. When the "Good Guy Goes Bad" Better watch out !
