Taxpayer money should be used to invest in ordinary citizens’ futures, not to fund politicians’ campaigns. Presidential candidates are already trending away from using PECF funds, anyway, so it makes sense to end the program and spend that money on training educators.
Public funding for elections acts as a counterweight against big money’s influence in elections and levels the playing field between presidential candidates, especially for candidates outside the two major political parties.
