The big guns of the lobbying world spent $709.9 million trying to influence Washington last year, a slight drop from 2012, records show.
Data from the Center for Responsive Politics shows nearly a quarter of the $3.21 billion that was spent lobbying Congress and the administration last year came from an elite group of 50 trade associations, companies and a nonprofit founded by George Soros.
His work has been featured on numerous outlets including the Drudge Report, Fox News, CBS News, ABC News, Yahoo News, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and The Huffington Post-- among many others.
