This morning, the US Supreme Court struck down Arizona’s “matching funds” provision in the Clean Elections law by a 5-4 decision.

You can read the opinion here.

The case is Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s Freedom Club PAC v. Bennett.

Americans for Tax Reform wanted to sum up the debate about ethanol subsidies as a tax increase vs. the status quo. If you voted for Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) amendment to end the $5 billion a year subsidy for ethanol producers, you support higher taxes. Coburn’s amendment failed, but did garner support of 34 of 44 Republicans (as well as 6 Democrats). A breakdown of those Republicans shows that the most conservative, free market Republicans voted with Coburn.
