on Campaign financing

How to Have Private Conversations with Powerful Pols | FDL Action: "Of course, if, as a country, we adopted public campaign financing, politicians wouldn’t need to spend all day chatting with weird billionaires in the hopes of convincing them to give large amounts of money to finance their campaigns. Instead, they might actually spend time thinking about what regular voters want. If that happened, we might not have Wall Street millionaires paying less in taxes (thanks to the capital gains tax loophole) than public school teachers."
