The article focuses on public financing of political campaigns in the U.S. It says that public financing has been passed in both Arizona and Maine, where candidates for legislative and statewide offices can receive campaign dollars from the state treasury, but U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has not yet decided to make it a caucus position. It says that without public financing, the government's pay-to-play legislative system cannot be reformed and progressive policy goals will not be achieved.
