Institutional bribery takes a holiday

[SF Gate]

The National Association of Home Builders has a way to solve the housing and economic slowdown: Give a tax credit of $10,000 or thereabouts to anyone who buys a newly built house.Congress declined to include this blatantly self-serving proposal in its first economic stimulus plan.

The builders group responded by halting all contributions to federal congressional candidates and their political action committees.

Heh. They’re taking their bribe money and going home to pound the floor. Wah.
