Rep. Chris Collins' indictment is a reminder that big government brings big corruption

(Worthy News) - Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., perfectly demonstrates the difference between two types of Republicans. Some support free enterprise. Others, including Collins, advocate “pro-business” policies.

In other words, Collins and those of his ilk who are often flattered with the label "moderates" want government to embrace business intimately. His indictment Wednesday on charges related to alleged insider trading, and frankly his entire record in Congress, remind us how intertwining industry and the state multiplies corruption.

Collins has been charged with tipping off his son that the drug of an Australian drug company, Innate Immunotherapeutics, had failed a clinical trial. Collins denies the charges, and he should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
