    Given the amount of money,superPACs invest in negative campaigning, is the message true? Or is the message skewed to fill a finacial gain for a limited wealthy few? Is the message really to help the middle and lower class? And to eliminate unfair attacks, I'm referring to both Democrat and Republican PACS.

    Presidential, senate, congressional, elections (especially) should be funded by tax dollars. Do away with super PACs and all the BS that goes along with it. A candidate would be given a certain sum and it's up to them to spend it wisely. We all know that when companies pour huge amounts of money into a candidate and that candidate wins, well you get the idea. Candidates should be elected, not bought. Just a thought.
