Please before i ask this, pardon my ignorance regarding. My question is, how can politicians look Americans in the eye, during this economic disaster, people with no jobs, no healthcare, getting kicked out of their homes, etc... when they spend millions on their campaigns. For example, John McCain has recently spent 20 million dollars trying to get re-elected to the Senate. McCain pays heavy reelection price - David Catanese - POLITICO.com 20 million. Does that not seem ridiculous? Is there anything that can be done that will reduce the amount of $ a candidate can spend, or accept as donations, from unions, corporations, etc. And I'm not trying to make this a shot at the Republicans, because Obama's presidential campaign cost a sh!tload. I mean think of what all the money that is raised by the DNC and RNC, and what it could do for problems in this country, infrastructure, etc. Am I the only one who thinks this way? Probably.
