How does a candidate raise $1,000,000,000.00 and what do you think the $1,000,000,000.00 buy? And does this even worry you?
I am concerned by what I feel is the casual way the news of "Obama wants to raise $1,000,000,000.00", it seems that dollar amount does not even warrant a discussion of who is paying these amounts and what will they expect in return for their dollars.
I don't necessarily blame Obama....he and his team have made the decision this is the dollar amount they will need to get Obma re-elected.
I am staggered by this amount and the influence it will buy.......from any candidate.
Where will this money come from? The unions (public, private) comes to mind....we know what they will expect.
Would giving each candidate $400,000,000.00 in public funds and no contributions from "special interests/outsiders" and that is all be a better solution? I know that can't happen SCOTUS had their say to that.
Does this bother you?
