ABSTRACT
The author comments on the U.S. Presidential Funding Tax Checkoff. It is noted that through the system, taxpayers can designate to a public fund for financing presidential campaigns. He explains that this was authorized in 1971 to limit campaign spending, crack down on corruption, and make it easier for voters and candidates to participate in presidential elections. But he asserts that the fund has become an utter failure, irrelevant, and totally obsolete and that the system should end while the savings should be used for needed programs.
