How much influence do large banks have on government laws, and why?

In:

Anyone with large amounts of money can have influence. You can’t specifically say “Vote for this law and I’ll give you a bunch of money” but you can make large contributions to the politicians campaign funds or let them know that after their political career is done that they have a really good chance of having a high-paying job at your company. So, if you’re a politician and Bob’s Bait Store and Bank & Trust has given you a shit load of money over the past years, when Bob comes up to and says “Hey, I think you should vote for this law that lets us charge %900000 interest compounded every hour”, you’ll probably vote for it because you don’t want to stop the flow of campaign funds.
