Eric Deaton on Government Reform
A: Yes. First amendment rights appear to protect all campaign contributions without limits, but limits must be in place to keep us from creating class warfare and to keep foreign influences out of our election system.
Q:Should Congress regulate indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?
Q: Do you support removing all contribution/spending limits on federal campaigns?
Q: Do you support limiting the President's ability to define how legislation is applied through the use of signing statements?
A: Yes. Presidential signing statements should not change the intent of the very laws passed by congress and should only be used to clarify (after consultation with congress) or to protest the possible Constitutionality of the new legislation.
