Purple Public - The Political Voice For Moderate Americans

PACs and Politics

PACs (Political Action Committees) have been around since 1944, and are simply committees that form to push certain political agendas.

There are limitations to the amount of money a PAC can contribute directly to a politcal candidate ($5,000) or political party ($15,000) per election cycle.

Solution: While all money should be removed from politics PACs at least have limitations in place to prevent outrageous abuses by large corporate and union interest.

However, the newly invented Super PACs, which are a by-product of the recent "Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission" ruling by the Supreme Court, are not alright and need to be stopped.
