Small dollar funding could support political campaigns

One system proposed could be to give "a rebate of $50 (from federal taxes) in the form of a 'democracy voucher.' That voucher could then be given to any candidate for Congress who agreed to one simple condition: the only money that candidate would accept to finance his or her campaign would be either “democracy vouchers” or contributions from citizens capped at $100. And if the voter didn’t use the voucher? The money would pass to his or her party, or, if an independent, back to this public funding system."
