The entire issue of campaign spending is a red herring, and here’s why.

A Repub billionaire gives $100 million to candidates who want to overturn Roe v Wade
A Democrat billionaire gives $100 million to candidates who want to uphold it.

Where does that money go? To advertising agencies, local TV stations, pizza joints to buy lunches for staffs, sign companies, stationary companies, temp agencies, etc.

Each one lays out $100 million and washes out the other, and the economy gets a $200 million (or $200 billion dollar, as the case may be) boost so that these guys can try to buy their government. Yet the fact that it’s happening on both sides provides for a balance where no one really wins. Except our economy.

Please tell me why this is bad…
