Do Laws Have A Constitutional Shelf Life?, Allison Orr Larsen 2019 William & Mary Law School

Do Laws Have A Constitutional Shelf Life?, Allison Orr Larsen

By changing our tax system from an income to a consistent progressive spending tax, the true cost of political expenditures by mega-donors could increase tenfold. By using a strategy of taxing ...
