U.S. Representative Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) speaks in support of a bill to stop taxpayer financing of presidential campaigns and shut down an obsolete federal election agency. H.R. 3463 combines a proposal crafted by Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) to terminate the Presidential Election Campaign Fund (PECF) and a plan authored by Harper, who chairs the Elections Subcommittee, to eliminate the Election Assistance Commission (EAC). Dissolving these federal programs saves taxpayers $480 million over five years and immediately decreases the federal deficit by $199 million, according to nonpartisan congressional scorekeepers.
