Elections are in the public interest, designating the propriety of public works, impacting every single member of the public -- so therefore we must have public financing for campaigns. When the candidate with the most money wins over 90 percent of the time, it's not an election, it's a rich kid's birthday party.
Supreme Court rulings from Citizens United to the recent McCutcheon case have made a mockery of campaign finance reform and opened the floodgates. Two in three Americans say they trust government less because big Super PAC donors have so much more influence than they do. One in four say they are less likely to vote as a result.
