I always check the box no on my tax return which leads me to believe the taxpayer are giving to candidates. The private sector gives too much. I think a better bill would be that each political donation has to be taxed at a 75% rate. The politicians are experts in raising funds and 100s of billions are spent annually on election campaigns. If for every dollar spent on a campaign had 3 going to the treasury. The tax payer burden would be a lot less, they could spend more, employers could higher more, big companies would make higher profits and also higher more . Those new hires would spend and our economy would be like an accelerating freight train.
