Hello Once More, All,
In connection with some of our recent back-and-forth on lobbying interests and Congress, I think today's post by Neil Buchanan over on Dorf is especially compelling. In case it's of interest to any of our MOJers or readers, you can find it here: http://www.dorfonlaw.org/2010/02/lobbying-and-corruption.html . For what my two cents here might be worth (presumably less than two cents), I think that Neil -- a warm, caring spirit who is altogether lovealbe for his never-dimming capacity still to be shocked by the routine corruptions of our political process carried out seemingly every day through representatives of both of the major political parties -- is one of the most effective commentators we have on matters of taxation, public finance, and macroeconomic policy.
