  •  Publicly funded elections to out-compete private (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    owned elections is the only quick way out of our political  mess. The next 20 years will bring a ton of changes no matter what. If the Democrats want to run long term on populist policies, they need to be ready to jump to public funding in the next 4 years. The party of big business can't really compete there. Our party has the big tent advantage for now and needs to capitalize on letting us look like the populist votes everywhere. We need fund raising time converted to citizen face to face time.

    Having to raise money while running the country is shameful. Legislators shouldn't have to hawk for dollars. That fundraising has nothing to do with their job for beyond it. They all get one vote and if they want more influence let them try to get a committee on a level playing field unsullied by filthy lucre.

    If they want more money let them raise taxes! If they can keep them.
