Comments of CCP President Sean Parnell to the United States Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights

The Center for Competitive Politics (CCP) submitted comments to an April 12, 2011 hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights, on the subject of S. 750, the Fair Elections Now Act (FENA). If passed, FENA would institute taxpayer financed elections for candidates to federally-elected offices. In our comments, CCP noted that FENA relies upon false premises and flawed analysis and would almost exclusively benefit entrenched incumbents and other political insiders without providing any noticeable benefits to the public.
