Letter: Where is the price list for politicians?
First Published Apr 10 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Apr 10 2014 10:40 am

I’m wondering if anyone knows where you can get a price list for politicians now that the Supreme Court has made it even easier to buy them ("Court loosens rules for big political campaign donors," Tribune, April 2)?

I’m looking for something that might list things like "personal response to letter, $50," or "five minutes of [insert politician’s name here] time in hallway, $2,500." This would make it easier for those of us without the big money to know what we could afford.

Maybe they could price themselves like the charities where you can buy "half a flock of goats" to send to Rwanda. You could get a leg of a senator for $500,000.

I’m concerned with some issues but have no idea how much to offer to get them heard.
