Hmmmm. Things like that should be illegal, however, that might have far wider effects.
These people who run businesses, create wealth, create jobs, employ people, and pay taxes, donate from the money they've earned toward the election
of people whose pro-growth ideas are good for the United States. That's good. And remember, when tax rates that are so high as to harm businesses
are lowered, the increase in economic activity can bring in more tax dollars from the lower rate. That happened as a result of the Reagan tax
George Soros donates large sums of money for liberal candidates that he believes in. The policies he favors do economic harm to the U.S. But, he is free to support whomever he wishes, too.
I agree that people should be free to give their money to whoever they choose to. However, there is also the possibility of bribery and corruption. It's a matter of being seen to do the right thing. In some ways, because it was a "public" donation, you'd hope that there was little collusion in it. Hmmmmm.
The thing is, they don't pay taxes fairly. They use every loophole in existence and try to create others to keep their million dollars a day profit.
Try this letter from an American who takes a different view to scholar
What kind of idiot votes for the candidate that takes donations from special interest groups?
I would not trust any candidate that could be bought.
Ryan has always been in favor of lower tax rates, higher employment, better paying jobs, and a growing, robust economy.
