    Federal government contractors may not make contributions to influence Federal elections. For example, if you are a consultant under contract to a Federal agency, you may not contribute to Federal candidates or political committees. Or, if you are the sole proprietor of a business with a Federal government contract, you may not make contributions from personal or business funds. But, if you are merely employed by a company (or partnership) with Federal government contracts, you are permitted to make contributions from your personal funds.

      most hospitals, schools, social service agencies, local governments, and other nonprofits have federal grants or contracts.  Not to mention Dept. of Defense contractors.  

      If it really excluded everyone who had a tiny bit of federal money attached to their paycheck in some way, it would radically change the face of political fundraising.
