  •  And make contributions tax credits (0+ / 0-)

    That would make the campaigns "publicly financed" without a lot of paperwork. The candidate would only have to issue a receipt for the taxpayer to file with their tax forms. Plus make the tax credit contributions only apply to candidates whom actually directly represents you. (If you contribute to a candidate outside of your representative area, the contribution would not be tax creditable.) Individual limits would still be imposed - probably with a tax credit limit with a higher absolute limit.

    Citizens would give more if they could justify it financially.
