    We need to reform campaign finances & get the corporate $$$, especially the Dark Money, out of our elections. $3 is not a large amount. Cut the damned defense budget if you are really worried about spending! Our entire system of democracy has been compromised by the private buying of elections by wealthy donors. STOP IT NOW!!

    How do taxpayer contributions through tax returns have any bearing on the federal deficit and spending?

    Solid idea, I hate taxes but I would have to say this I would be glad to pay. Spending on the deficit though I'm not so sure about how exactly this would be

    If we are going to eliminate any funding it should be private. This would give each candidate the same budget.

    The most important factor in someone's ability to lead should be their capability and policies. Not who they know and how good they are at raising money. Congress spends more time cold calling donors than reading legislation. Don't roll this backwards.
