Election Reform

I had this idea the other night and couldn’t think of anywhere else to jot it where I could refine it, so I’m posting it here.

I was reading something about the massive volumes of fundraising dollars that political parties gather and spend on elections, then once they’re elected, there’s no money for anything. What if parties were required to donate 30 cents of every dollar raised in fundraising to a charity that assists people living below the poverty line? Then we wouldn’t really need to cap fundraising dollars because the more that’s raised, the better.

Let me know where I’m wrong with this while I think it through more.
