I was very grateful when Minnesota passed the voucher legislation. I felt helpless that I could not financially support candidates that shared my values. Candidates that I did not support often were receiving financial support form individuals and corporations. It was not fair to sometimes have people win elections simply by outspending their opponent. The vouchers created a more level playing field that is vital to a true democracy.
I would like for this to go even further. I support every candidate being held to a specified amount that can be spent an election. The money that goes into political campaigns could feed every child/family in this country that goes with no or little food each day.
