What if congress asked (not forced) the networks to charge 50% more for negative campaign ads aired on their channels... Of course, they wouldn't have to comply, but I bet that the visibility of a congressional request might get the networks thinking about the increased revenue they could get from such a thing, and it might clean up the entire exerience along the way.

So who gets to decide if a particular ad qualifies as "negative"? What is to prevent a broadcaster from deciding only the ads belonging to one party qualify?

Bad idea.
