CASH MACHINE -- Exclusive: A look at the ATM for the country’s most conservative groups -- By Alex Pappas, The Daily Caller

Exclusive: A look at the ATM for the country’s most conservative groupsYou may not have heard of the Center to Protect Patient Rights, but the organization doled out millions to some of the country’s most active conservative groups in 2012, according to new tax documents provided to The Daily Caller.

Tax forms indicate that the Arizona-based group — one of the largest nonprofit conservative grant makers of its kind — spent almost $137 million on its activities in 2012. Most of that money went to grants to nearly 50 conservative organizations, many of which are dedicated to getting rid of President Barack Obama’s unpopular health-care law.

Among the groups that received the most money from the Center to Protect Patient Rights in 2012:

— American Future Fund – $49.2 million
— Americans for Responsible Leadership – $24.7 million
— Americans for Prosperity – $11.5 million
— American Commitment – $4.8 million
— Citizen Link – $4.2 million
— National Rifle Association for Legislative Action – $3.2 million
— 60 Plus Association – $2.6 million
— Americans for Limited Government – $1.6 million
— Citizens Awareness Project – $1 million

Other conservative groups that received grants: Americans for Tax Reform ($350,000); Americans United for Life Action ($65,000); Club for Growth ($450,000); Concerned Women for America ($173,573); Emergency Committee for Israel ($200,000); Hispanic Leadership Fund ($645,000); Susan B. Anthony List ($385,000); Heritage Action Fund ($8,000); Generation Opportunity ($29, 211) and the National Federation of Independent Business ($135,783).
