So, to be clear, I am against the “flood of money” being pumped into politics. IMO, politicians should have 5 each ads given to the 2 media outlets of his choice, the ability to participate in public debate with 5 more TV interviews during the 3 month run up to election. Anything else must come from his own pocket with a limit of 100K. people that want to see that person in office need to volunteer at NO PAY to put them there.The salary (given the complaint of the rep that said his 6 figure paycheck was too small) should reflect the average in his district. And retirement should be SS and whatever they can put back like the rest of us.But like they say, he who has the gold rules…..
