The author discusses the polemic issue in the U.S. involving vote-buying for the November 2012 elections. She mentions the record breaking fundraising contributions received by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney where only 12 million dollars or 16 percent of it came from small donors. She also asserts the need for Americans to ponder that though money can help, the answer is still more than raising more money.
