Competition Quotes

"The crafting of legislation by Congress has always been like the making of sausage.

The pot has grown, with hundreds of billions of dollars of goodies now up for grabs for whoever knows the right people, can convince the right committee chairman to insert a clause in the legislation, convince the right regulatory bureaucrat to word a ruling in a certain way, or secure the right appointment to a key government panel."
Charles Murray, political scientist and author
