How much do they cost? -- Do elections cost a lot more now than they used to? -- Is it true that the candidate with the most money always wins? -- Where do candidates get the money to pay for their campaigns? -- What is the role of political parties? -- How has Congress regulated money in elections? -- What is the state of the Federal Election Campaign Act today? -- 2 Watergate and Buckley v. Valeo -- What was Watergate? -- What was the campaign finance part of Watergate? -- How did Congress change campaign finance law after Watergate? -- Who were Buckley and Valeo? -- Why did Senator Buckley and the other challengers think the 1974 reforms were unconstitutional? -- How did the circuit court decide Buckley v. Valeo? -- How did the Supreme Court decide Buckley v. Valeo? -- How did the challengers, the defenders, and the justices deal with the reform goals of curbing campaign costs, preventing corruption, and promoting equality? -- Why is Buckley v. Valeo still important today? -- 3 The rise and fall of public funding -- How does the Presidential Election Campaign Fund work? -- Did Congress come up with the idea of public funding in response to Watergate? -- What did reformers hope to accomplish by using public funds to pay for elections? -- Why was Senator Long's public funding bill so controversial? -- If the income tax checkoff was so controversial in the 1960s, how did it survive the political battles in Congress?.
