In his New York Times column today, Thomas Friedman provides the platform he'd like a presidential candidate to run on. We definitely agree with the last issue:
"Finally, I want to vote for a candidate who supports a minimum floor of public financing of presidential, Senate and House campaigns. Money in politics is out of control today. Our Congress has become a forum for legalized bribery. Americans are losing faith in the instruments of government because they think the game is rigged by big money — and they’re right."
He's right. Polling we released this week with Stan Greenberg (who Friedman quotes in today's piece) shows that voters are tired of this broken political system and addressing money-in-politics reform is becoming a voting issue for more and more Americans in 2012.
