The thirteen Republican Senators who worked behind closed doors to rewrite the House’s American Health Care Act, received a combined $2,776,012 in campaign contributions from the health insurance and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries between November 2010 — the year Obamacare was passed — and November 2016, according to nonprofit journalism outfit MapLight.

The 13 lawmakers drafting the Senate legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act received an average of $214,000 in campaign contributions – nearly double the amount received by colleagues excluded from the process, according to a MapLight analysis.
