Money and politics have become synonymous. The party bosses require a 1.5 million dollar “buy in” for the congressional race in the third district. This amount essentially blocks any candidate of normal means from running, and, that “buy in” assures yet another out of touch millionaire in congress, an institution already bloated with out-of-touch millionaire politicians.I stand firmly against crony capitalism. We need extensive campaign finance reform to get the out-of-touch politicians out of congress and to return the government to the people. The only way to do this is through public financing of elections.
