I support H.R. 94 ("To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to prohibit the use of public funds") because... we have LOTS of wasteful spending in this country and we damn sure don't need OUR tax dollars spent on a politician that is more than likely CORRUPT!!

I support H.R. 94 ("To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to prohibit the use of public funds") because...Only approve of this if the "prohibit the use of public funds" includes removing the 501(c) (3),(4) tax exempt status on political action committees and Super PACS.

I actually don't totally oppose this bill. But I chose to oppose it because while I don't like the idea of using public funds to further any political agenda, I don't like the direction politics and their funding have taken in the last few years. In 2012 alone, the total spent on political races both for President and congressional races was over $6.2 Billion. That is ludicrous. I would actually like to propose a better process, with more transparency, that should yield a much better informed electorate that hopefully would be able to wield that information into a more responsible and more open Congress.
