    FoxNews.com - GOP Seeks to End Public Campaign Financing

    Read all at the above.

    I love it! And they are right! Campaign financing is just welfare for rich politicians.

    Let them raise their own damn money!

    Democrats, of course, are screaming like stuck pigs on this, since Citizen's United.

    You can bet, it won't get past Obama.

    Republicans should keep on cutting spending and letting Obama veto it, and let the American people see for themselves, who are the big tax and spenders.

    It's not fair to force them to raise their own money.....because oppressed minorities can't afford it, so in fairness, we gotta pay it dude!!!!

    To my way of looking at it is this is a stupid move on the part of the Reps. This is money that the individual donates by checking off the box on their tax forms. Where is the savings, nowhere that's where. If they don't want people to donate eliminate the check off box on the tax form, don't pretend that you are doing us a favor or are saving us money.

    No mention of getting rid of the matching funds scam.
