Fritz Hollings, Wrong Again
Fritz Hollings, what part of the First Amendment bothers you so?
Limits on donations have made it easy for millionaires to win seats in the Senate. But the fund-raising problem in politics isn't the amount of money, it's the amount of time legislators spend raising money. And that time is increased every time donation limts are imposed. A more radical idea would be to lift donation limits, make Congress work Monday through Friday and require 24-hour disclosure of all donations.
