There is too little, not too much, money in politics. The one billion dollars spent annually by candidates and political parties is a pittance when compared to the size of the Federal budget.
It's anticipated that the Supreme Court will rule this summer on the constitutionality of the Bi-Partisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (McCain-Feingold). Supporters claim the bill will improve political discourse and create opportunities for participation. But will "getting the money out of politics" actually enhance the power of the American people?
