Censorship Also Failed In The Election
This article describes the GOP's effort to censor a research report on tax policy that refuted one their basic myths. That is the idea that cutting taxes for the rich helps to grow the economy. They were assisted in this effort by the propagandists at the Heritage Foundation which is funded by wealthy conservatives who get to deduct their contributions from their tax returns. The censorship backfired because the article got more attention than it would have otherwise. The US is not yet ready to become a rich third world state.
