"These efforts are not about saving taxpayer money, they are about giving corporate donors even more access than they enjoy today. We hope these measures don't advance any further."

U.S Political subsidy.
In the U.S they also have a subsidy for political parties, and in the house they voted for the repal of their political party subsidy. In the U.S this will be more devastating, because there candidates can already get funding from big corporations, and eliminating the subsidy would make politicians not accountable to the voters, but rather there money would be coming from corporations which they will have to stay accountable to in order to get their money. Now there subsidy is different than ours here, but the reason the Republicans are giving to the people are the same. The senate majority leader said that the deficit is so big taxpayers shouldn't have to give welfare to the politicians almost the same thing that Harper said. The truth is that the subsidy is important and without it private corporations will have more power than they already do. The subsidy has to stay in both the U.S and Canada. The U.S must also dramatically reform how candidates can get money.
