Eroding the checks on campaign contributions
Shaun McCutcheon, an electrical engineer and self-described "conservative with a pretty good libertarian streak," remembers the first time he was shown a "massively confusing chart" about federal limits on political contributions.
No more than $48,600 to candidates for federal office per two-year election cycle. No more than $74,600 to political parties and political action committees. Maximum $123,200 total.
