With the passage of AB 387, Newspeak once again infuses Republican media releases

As quoted, with emphasis added, in Senator Lazich Applauds the Protection of Free Speech. (Media release, 11/6/2015)

Let's face it.  Wisconsin Republicans are in a Andrea True Connection kinda mood.

From the bill text:
The bill doubles the contribution limits under current law applicable to candidates for state or local office. Under the bill, every five years, beginning in 2021, the board will adjust the contribution limits to reflect the percentage change in the consumer price index during the preceding five-year period.

More than 70% of all political contributions isn't enough for Repubs.
