    Wait, they don't have one--never have .
    Actually there have been a number of proposals. Ask Harry Reid for copies, I think he has them stuffed in his back pocket.

    Re: Justices strike down political donor limits

    Which House GOP proposals on Health Care are you speaking of?
    All I've seen is 50 repeals.
    I'd be anxious to see a replace.

    To be fair to the RINOs, every time they put out a proposal, such as Ryan's April Fool's day example,
    both the Dems and especially the TEAs go ape-****, as they did yesterday.

    Why bother huh?

    Do you think running against Reid and with McConnell is a win-win ?

    ^^That is a database of donations. You can use it to find who donates to who in your community (or anywhere).. You can track corporations and such as well.
    Depends on how much goes through 502(c)(4)s, whose donors are anonymous.

    Donor anonymity was at the heart of the IRS "scandal".

    I think running Charles Manson against Reid and Manson winning would be a win. No one is worse them Dirty Harry!

    Please try not talk to much of 50 repeals. People will think you are just a partisan hack for repeating un-truths since it has not been done.

    Don't you think a partisan hack is one who is denying that your team has had 50 repeals?
    I ask again, where is your Health proposal on the floor?
    What parts of the current law would GOPs get rid of?

    Dems will continue to hammer you on this, now that they're spending money .

    If you and I, both supported Candidate A, and I gave $5 dollars and you contributed the FEC max of $10 dollars, would the two contributions be lawful and constitutional? Yes they would.

    Free speech to donate existed for the both of us.

    Now if you believed that the limit of $10 dollars was not fair and took the limit to court...If the "limit" were ruled unconsitutional, then free speech still exists...does it not?

    My under the limit $5 dollar contribution is still lawful and constitutional as well as your unlimited contribution.

    No solace can be taken from McCain's words on campaign financing.
    Invest in the campaign finance industry.

    Corporations are people according to this USSC ruling.
    We all need to deal with it .
    I know what the rule states, no need to list it out like it's adding something. That's why I said "should" because I am stating my opinion. Being a debate board, people do often times state their opinion even if their opinion conflicts with current law. Thanks.

    No, I don't want any ads at all. Ads don't inform the voters anyway, quite the contrary.

    Any financing should be public.
    further, there should be no multi million dollar campaigns using slick ads spewing half truths and outright lies. We should hear from the candidates in honest debate and hardball interviews.
