These are the top contributors (taken from http://www.opensecrets.org/politicians/contrib.php?cycle=2008&cid=N00009638 ).

Some of these companies are those that are coming to the government (the taxpayers) looking for a handout.  I have an idea.  How about if Obama does his part to assist the country’s financial and mortgage crisis by giving some of his contributors their money back?

For the record, McCain also got money from some of the same companies (though much less).  I also suggest that McCain give back the money that the troubled companies gave him.
