The public increasingly rejects the Democrat's leftward lurchings. Polls show that the Dems may take a big hit at the polls this November.
What's a political party to do when the public rejects their message? How about pass a law that restricts the free speech of the opposition?
Here is what it the bill will do, according to these former commissioners (Joan Aikens, Lee Ann Elliott, Thomas Josefiak, David Mason, Bradley Smith, Hans A. von Spakovsky, Michael Toner, and Darryl R. Wold):
• favors union political free speech over corporate free speech in violation of longstanding campaign finance laws.
• increases the regulatory burdens (and financial costs) on grass-roots movements and low-budget campaigns.
• infringes on First Amendment rights of free association as recognized by the Supreme Court in NAACP v. Alabama.
• increases government regulation of political free speech on the web without touching the Mainstream Media (which tilts Left).
