The impact of campaign funding

As decided at last week's meeting our next discussion topic will be about campaign funding and its impact on elections and political decisionmaking. The following article mentions the two parties we were talking about at the last meeting:

Questions to consider:
1. Are you for or against campaign spending limits?
2. What do you believe is the impact of campaign spending on the election? On political decisions?
3. How would you recommend changing the current campaign laws?

We will likely focus our discussion on the United States but you are welcome to bring in examples from other countries.
