    • On August 01, 2010, by jlohman - Wow. And this from a Republican? Great idea, but I get nervous -- real nervous -- when politicians are fixed to balance the budget and they have to decide between their moneyed special interests that funded their campaign and their constituents back home. Something tells me that the beast they starve will be the citizens of the US. Better that they first pass public funding of campaigns. Nothing is going to change until we have public funding of campaigns. What is it about political bribes do we not understand? If politicians are going to be beholden to their funders, those funders should be the taxpayers. And at $5 per taxpayer per year it would be a bargain. Even at 100 times that. We MUST lobby our senators and representative to co-sponsor the bill at: http://www.fairelectionsnow.org/more/summary Jack Lohman … http://MoneyedPoliticians.net jelohman@gmail.com
