2) NO contributions by ANY group. And Yes! that include unions, foreigngovs, non-profit, Sierra Club and what have you. Nada! Zippo! Riendu tout!That was my major question. If the corporations are so scary in the amount they donate, what about unions? The NEA is one of the largest unions in the world, and they can esily make it so that the donations they give are individual instead of simply as a PAC (which they also do). GWB said something in reference to the corporate scandals of recent, but it is applicable to politicians also. "We can't make them honest, we can only make laws to punish them if they are dishonest."Unfortunately, there will always be someone that figures out a way around the laws. Maybe the campaign finance reform bill needs to be worded along the lines of RICO. "You are doing something wrong, we don't know exactly what it is, but you are doing something illegal."
