    Default Congressional vote

    I saw this and felt it made a great point about which side the republicans stand on.
    This proposed amendment was voted down by a majority of republicans yesterday.
    It would have placed limits on political spending.

    ``Section 1. To advance democratic self-government and political
    equality, and to protect the integrity of government and the electoral
    process, Congress and the States may regulate and set reasonable limits
    on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to
    influence elections.
    ``Section 2. Congress and the States shall have power to implement
    and enforce this article by appropriate legislation, and may
    distinguish between natural persons and corporations or other
    artificial entities created by law, including by prohibiting such
    entities from spending money to influence elections.
    ``Section 3. Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant
    Congress or the States the power to abridge the freedom of the
    press.''.
    "Set reasonable limits" and "distinguish between natural persons and corporations".
    Those are the main words in my opinion.
    Every NO vote was republican.
    Does that tell you what side they choose to represent ?

    Doesn't surprise me in the least. Apparently the only way this will pass is if there's a supermajority in the Senate, and fat chance of that happening.
