Party Dues

It’s an open secret in Washington that both parties strong-arm legislators into raising astronomical amounts of cash in order to serve in powerful legislative positions. Affording this “committee tax” often means spending countless hours soliciting corporations, labor unions, and other special interests that have business before Congress. This takes members of Congress away from the jobs they were elected to do — crafting legislation, building relationships with their colleagues, assisting constituents, and conducting oversight.
