It allows the power of the many to be better heard, which is far more democratic than unlimited campaign spending by billionaires.

There were two presidential candidates in 2008 who promised to accept the fundraising limits associated with public financing. One broke his promise, set records for fundraising and spending, out raised his opponent in Wall Street money, and won the presidency.

That's the new model.
