D.C. doings

Rep. Peter Welch on Monday called for new campaign finance legislation in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision.

Welch called for a constitutional amendment to clarify Congress’ authority to limit corporate campaign contributions. He also said he supports legislation to ban foreign companies, government contractors and recipients of the Troubled Asset Relief Program from spending money on elections; require company executives and top donors to appear in campaign ads; ban groups’ coordination with a candidate within 90 days of a primary election for House and Senate races and 120 days for a presidential race.

Peter, "Have you been injured" just say NO to tort reform, Welch
Welch the millionaire hasn't got a clue how the rest of us have to scrape just to get by. Typical out-of-touch Washingtonian lawmaker. Let's raise some dough to get rid of him.
