ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Has anyone else noticed that Washington politicians name their bills the same way the rulers make up slogans in George Orwell’s “1984”?

But, as has been remarked, it might as well stand for Democratic Incumbents Seeking to Contain Losses by Outlawing Speech in Elections.”

What’s democratic about a regime that trashes the First Amendment and imposes censorship?
