I do believe that the push for “campaign-finance reform” came from the DemocRat party, with the assistance of RINO Senator John McCain (McCain-Feingold). Oh, and also the infamous “Citizens United” Supreme Court decision that allowed, get this, Corporations and Labor Unions to spend money on political campaigns. Numerous groups declare their interest in repealing that “Citizens United” ruling, even though it would mean their favored labor unions would also not be able to give money to campaigns.
I wonder why no one seems too worried that multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg, running as a DemocRat, has been simply pouring money into his campaign for president. It sure looks like he is trying to BUY the DemocRat nomination to me. Hey, DemocRats, how about looking close to home for the goal of getting all that big corporate money out of politics (yes, Bloomberg got all his money from his Company, Bloomberg, LP, which provides financial information).
Oh, and I almost forgot! What about that other billionaire DemocRat running for president, Tom Steyer? The one-issue candidate pouring multi-millions of his own money into the campaign? Funny, you don’t hear much about him, do you? He doesn’t even register in most polls. Another fool, just like Bloomberg.

Just like different horses for different courses. Different rule of law for the Ruling Class than for my slave class.
