Too much spent campaigning
To the Editor:
I don't know the answer to this, but perhaps you
may have the solution.
Does anyone know the total of all the money spent
on all the election campaigns combined for this mid-term
election. Wouldn't it be great if that money could go to
education, infrastructure, medical research, the homeless, or even to study how and what it might take to return our unemployed and under-employed to sustainable jobs with a measure of security.
The amount spent on print, paper, TV, radio, and internet has to be exorbitant. Do we really get the best candidate for the buck? If anyone has a better idea how campaign financing could be done, would you please respond to this letter.
