    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) has released a proposal she says will clean up American elections by allocating "Democracy Dollars" for voters to give to their desired candidates.

    Under Gillibrand's proposal, those who wanted to participate could request up to $600 from the FEC and spend up to $200 each on House, Senate, and presidential races. They would only be allowed to donate to House and Senate races in their own state, although they could give to a House race outside their home district.

    "Every U.S. citizen over 18-years-old may choose to request ‘Democracy Dollars' from the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) for a given federal election cycle. For each federal race, the recipient will receive $200-worth of ‘Democracy Dollars' – equally divided between the primary ($100) and general election ($100) – to spend in $10 increments on eligible candidates of their choosing," the plan states.
    Another vote buying trick by the Dems

    We pay for all the other vote-buying crap every day. There’s no way this would be any different. Guvmint giveaways come from the taxpayers, not the guvmint.

    Sooooo, this idiot wants to give taxpayer dollars to people so they can donate it to a politician?
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.
