Forum Post: How about a lottery ticket if you vote and individually directed public financing?

Ok here’s the basics how about a lottery ticket be given to each voter at the polls or by return mail for mail-ins, say a $250,000 prize in each congressional district, so it is automatically spread around. That would “cost” about 100 million, but really that’s money right back to work better than giving it to a bank.

Part two; every taxpayer would have the option of giving up to $50 to anybody they could vote for in a federal election on their tax return. Then the fed would rebate them up to $50 on their return and match it dollar for dollar for a total of $100 that might be around $10 billion a year, the 1% could try and match it, but I think the people would take the power back, and I don’t think the SCOTUS could screw it up.

Oh here’s some good news that sort of gave me the ideal.

We have something like this in AZ but its only $5 and the GOP just forced a drop of the tax credit, so I would say they have killed it here.

The tax credit thing worked great in AZ, that's why the GOP killed it.

Yeah, the GOP seems to want fewer voters, rather than more of them.

This is already on the Federal Tax Returns - only it's $1.00 instead of $50.00.

That's for the president only, what I'm talking about is directed by you not the government and would go to all federal elections.
