Money should not equal free speech, each individual should have equal free speech as the constitution intended. In New York city, we have a billionaire monopolizing free speech, not because he has the backing of the majority of the people, not because he has the best ideas, but simply because he has the most money to bully his way into winning.
There has to be a limit on spending in compaigns. The infestation of money into the political arena has bought our country to its present fiscal ruin. Elected holders has to raise large sums of money to compete. After being elected, these office holders do the bidding of the compaign contributors instead of the majority of the people. This must change.
