John McCain probably doesn't know how to access the Internet. He's a great one to be proposing stuff like this.
I'd vote for LABF for president before I voted for John McCain.
Dude you need understand how the system works. McCain is reacting to some piece of information feed to him by his staffers. The staffers get that stuff from organizations promoting something, letter from their states or what hot in the news right now. Those staffers then go ask the DC think tanks for one page white paper on that subject. Each side of the aisle have their favorite think tanks that kinda mirror thier beliefs. It hard to go into great depth when one page to decide something.
After the staffers get that information they creating policy and feed it to thier bosses, usually when they are running to a vote. Then reps or the senators go propose something based upon the single piece of paper and what their staffers are telling them. They are aren't the sons of Cincinnatus
