This article discusses the issue of campaign finance reform in the U.S. Raising funds has always been a dreaded problem for politicians in the country. Politicians who do not like to ask people for money face a psychological drain. Those who support or call for campaign finance reform want to include the amount of money a politician can spend for federal campaigns. There is clear reason to put a ceiling on money spent for campaigns. Other call for transparency on people who donate money to politicians' campaign.
