Publicly Funds Political Campaigns...
How bad and what’s wrong with H.R. 1?
Publicly funds political campaigns— H.R. 1 will use public funds to create a six-to-one match on political contributions up to $200. This would force the American people to spend millions of dollars to fund the campaigns of political candidates.
Candidate campaign salaries would be publicly funded— Candidates that take a salary out of their campaigns would now be able to be paid with public funds provided by the previously mention six-to-one match program.
The massive H.R. 1 is 791 pages. This particular egregious portion of the bill can be found beginning on page 604 with line one.
