Fair Elections Now Act

Just $6 Campaign Announces Support for Fair Elections Now Act
Nonpartisan Organization Says Bill Upholds Free Speech

Concord, NH. – Americans for Campaign Reform (ACR), who launched the “Just $6” grassroots movement for public funding, has announced its support for the Fair Elections Now Act that proposes voluntary public funding for all Senate races. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Arlen Specter (R-PA) introduced the bipartisan legislation as a way to restore public confidence in the election process.

The legislation would create a voluntary system through which participating Senate candidates––those who establish their credibility by collecting enough qualifying contributions and who then pledge not to accept private contributions ––would receive public funds for primary and general elections. Participants would also be eligible for free media vouchers and discounted commercial advertising rates.

NO ! ! ! This is a Trojan Horse

It claims to provide funding for grassroots candidates, who

"establish their credibility by collecting enough qualifying contributions and who then pledge not to accept private contribution.

This will allow the government to set up the rules so that THEY decide what "credible" is, as well as set up time frame, definition of "private contributions" etc. Maybe they would count any Youtube video promoting a candidate as a "private contribution", Look at the $2300 dollar limit. That rule is full of loopholes you could drive a truck through. Plus, I don't want a Penny of my tax money going to help re-elect some of these people.

Government control of campaign finance is a bad Idea.
