Text Versions
When you look at the money spent by labor unions for Democrats, it comes as no surprise the Democrats crafted a campaign-finance ‘disclosure’ bill with the thresholds adjusted to exempt unions.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) But having said that, what’s happening with campaign finance reform and our political culture is devastating.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Maybe when they no longer receive Sierra magazine in their mailboxes, journalists will understand how campaign finance reform abridges free speech.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Democrats’ desperate attempt to focus on campaign finance reform instead of laws that may have been broken by the Clinton-Gore campaign is like Mike Tyson demanding a reform in boxing regulations after biting off a piece of Evander Holyfield’s ear.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) School performance, public health, crime rates, clinical depression, tax compliance, philanthropy, race relations, community development, census returns, teen suicide, economic productivity, campaign finance, even simple human happiness - all are demonstrably affected by how (and whether) we connect with our family and friends and neighbours and co-workers.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) From 1976, Judy to 1996, we had six presidential elections. And it was run under the Campaign Finance Reform Act of 1974. In all six of them, every candidate agreed to limits of what he could collect in contributions and what he could spend in seeking a nomination. And they all abided by it.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) There are two reforms that we need to restore our democracy. The first is campaign finance. We need to get the corporate money out of the election process. And second, we need to resolve the dysfunction in the environment. Looters are running agencies that are supposed to be protecting us from pollution.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) For years, liberals have demonstrated a near religious devotion to the cause of ‘cleaning up elections’ with campaign finance reform, the wondrous panacea that would finally rescue our great country from corruption in politics. ... How anyone could believe that corrupt politicians could or would legislate away their own corruption is completely beyond me.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) We are very frustrated because we have a Supreme Court that seems determined to say that the wealthier have more right to free speech than the rest of us. For example, they say you couldn’t stop me from spending all the money I’ve saved over the last five years on Hillary’s campaign if I wanted to, even though it would clearly violate the spirit of campaign finance reform.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Tom DeLay may or may not have broken campaign finance laws, but he did his best to look like he was breaking them.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) My issue with campaign finance is 100 percent disclosure. Wear a suit with patches from your big contributors. Depending on the size of the contribution, that’s how big the patch should be.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Let’s face it, the subject of campaign finance is not always scintillating. But it’s incredibly important.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) There’s issue of a corrupt campaign finance system, where big money interests and Wall Street are trying to buy elections.Those are the issues that are resonating.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Unfortunately, money in politics is an insidious thing - and a loophole in our campaign finance system was taken advantage of with money going to existing or new 527 groups with the sole purpose of influencing the election.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) I think the presidency is a bad way to measure the effective campaign finance, because in the presidency, there is so much publicity, there’s so much money floating around.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) I find that students are very strong on my issues, stronger than anyone: anti-death penalty, anti-racial profiling, campaign finance reform, questioning the anti-terrorism bill.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Actually criminal sanctions that are given could be up to five years for violating the rules and regulations under the campaign finance reform. This is like the Alien and Sedition Act of years and years ago, decades ago  (Campaign Finance Quotes) I certainly want campaign finance reform. I just wish this would do it in a way that would stand up to a constitutional challenge  (Campaign Finance Quotes) I have a lot of stands on a lot of political issues.

I still think most Americans aren’t aware of how the dumping of big corporate dollars and private donor dollars has totally corrupted the political system and taken it away from them  (Campaign Finance Quotes) I admired the way McCain worked on campaign finance reform. I admired the way Nancy Pelosi stiffened the Democrats’ spine during the health care debate. I admire the way Barack Obama has raised a dog in the White House without ever putting it on the roof of the car for a vacation drive  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Campaign finance and ethics reform only works if it curtails all special interest groups equally and does not carve out any exceptions to benefit one party or another. ‘Pay to play’ reform was passed to limit the influence of big spending contractors over the public officials from whom they are trying to obtain work  (Campaign Finance Quotes) I think what you`ve got are millions of people who are in trouble today. They really are. They`re confused. They`re working longer hours for lower wages. They`re seeing productivity going up but their kids are worse off economically than they are. They`re looking at a campaign finance system in politics and they see corruption, big money buying elections. Nobody in Congress is listening to them  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Super PACs and a corrupt campaign finance system are destroying American democracy. We’re proud that we have received four million individual contributions, more than any candidate in American history at this point.  (Campaign Finance Quotes) We need real campaign finance reform to loosen the grip of special interests on politics  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Nobody wants campaign finance reform more than me. It would save me a fortune  (Campaign Finance Quotes) But having said that, what’s happening with campaign finance reform and our political culture is devastating  (Campaign Finance Quotes) I think we need to take on the greed of the billionaire class, a disastrous campaign finance system  (Campaign Finance Quotes) Well, paycheck protection is an important ingredient for a successful campaign finance reform measure  (Campaign Finance Quotes) What distinguishes the campaign finance issue from just about every other one being debated these days is that the two sides do not divide along conventional liberal/ conservative lines  (Campaign Finance Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
