Liberals Propose Taxpayers Fund Congressional Campaigns

It's one thing when you see outrageous claims made by a Congressional candidate you oppose. At least you're not paying for it. Under a new plan advocated by liberal Democrats, you will be.

The Fair Elections Now Act (what is it with liberals and always having to add the word "now" to everything, usually while screaming it?) would put taxpayers on the hook for paying for Congressional campaigns. Of course, what the government pays for, it also controls.

John Samples, Director of the Center for Responsive Government at the Cato Institute, makes the case as to why this is a terrible idea.
