Stupid Campaign Finance Reform Headlines

From Public Campaign, tireless advocates for restricting your speech, comes this stupid campaign finance headline:

Elected Officials Voting Against Health Reform Received 65% More in Campaign Donations From Health and Insurance Interests Than Those Voting for Reform

Next we’ll learn elected officials opposed to tax increases received more in campaign donations from people opposed to tax increases than did those voting for tax increases; that lawmakers voting for “card check” received more from unions than from business; and that officials supporting “public” financing of campaigns received more from employees of Public Campaign than they did from those opposed to tax financing of campaigns.


The Center for Competitive Politics is now the Institute for Free Speech.
