Members of Congress think highly of General Electric, making it the most popular investment on Capitol Hill. Seventy-five lawmakers held a total of $3.6 million in GE stock last year, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
It just so happens that GE thinks highly of Congress, too, spending $39 million on lobbying in 2010.
Other popular investments among representatives and senators include Procter & Gamble (62 investors, totaling $8.7 million), Bank of America (57, $2.8 million), Microsoft and Cisco Systems (each with 56) and Pfizer (51).
