Regulations and restrictions on expenditures in political campaigns.
Regulated Political Spending
Proponents of regulated political spending aim to increase the transparency of political contributions and limit influence-seeking money in politics. They believe that letting the vast imbalance of wealth dominate the political sphere is a danger to democratic processes, which are premised upon the principle of equality.
Unlimited Political Spending
Proponents of unlimited political spending believe that political campaign donations are a protected form of free speech and that any restrictions are unconstitutional.
