How Much Does A Congressman Cost?

Does he cost less than a senator or governor? Certainly more than a state legislator...

Rasmussen Reports found that 50% of America believes that it takes a contribution of at least $50,000 to influence a congressman. 27% believe it takes at least $100,000. However, 24% are even more skeptical, identifying $1000 to $10,000 as the price for action by a congressman in your favor.

Maybe those 24% are merely optimists, who believe that anyone with a $1000 to spare can buy a United States Representative.
