End of Public Funding for Presidential Campaigns?

This is more complicated than Roll Call would have you believe. On one hand, I entirely buy that it’s ridiculous for the government to fund campaigns. On the other, having some level of public funding can encourage third party candidates who might not otherwise be able to afford a run to participate. I don’t know exactly what the President proposed in terms of reforming the system, but I think I may fall with him on this one.
