Buying Votes

From Assymetrical Information:

Someone in the Senate wants to give every American a $100 rebate to offset the pain of high oil prices. As the inimitable Professor Bainbridge asks, why not just call it The Official Republican Vote-Buying Act of 2006 and be done with it?

Every politician wants to be seen as doing something about high gas prices. Doing something is not the same as doing something constructive. It is not constructive to use tax revenues to buy votes.
