ABSTRACT
The article expresses the author's opinions in relation to the lack of progress that has been experienced with campaign finance reform in the U.S. Questions are raised regarding increases that have occurred in the amount of money that is being spent by special interest groups on campaign financing. The impact that regulations, such as the McCain-Feingold campaign reform law, have had on campaign financing are discussed.
