The funding isn't voluntary

The funding isn't voluntary at all. Taxpayers only have the choice of checking the box to have $3 given to the Ds and Rs, or not checking the box and having the $3 instead going to some other government function.

Taxpayers don't have the choice of keeping the $3. When they provide THAT option, the contribution will be voluntary.
