Chris Collins

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

Editors, Washington Examiner

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. While he votes with conservatives on tax cuts, he votes with left-wing Democrats on spending and subsidies. He thinks government should actively help business rather than get out of the way of businesses.
