Campaign Finance Reform

Campaign finance reform, and the influence of money in politics more generally, is a contentious, unresolved issue. Make an argument for either more or less government regulation of campaign financing. Be sure to include the following:
• A summary of recent developments in campaign finance law in the United States, including acts of Congress and Supreme Court cases.
• A clear explanation as to why there should be more/less regulation of campaign finance. Be specific.
• An example of when a lack of regulation/too much regulation of campaign finance harmed American democracy.
• Predictions for the future—what barriers do you expect will inhibit the changes you suggest from occurring?
