The major hurdle is getting the general public aware of campaign finance reform in the 1st place.
But its not goign to happen as those with money can and will give more than can bematched by federal spending. Remeber that Obama considered not taking matchig last time because of the limits it placed. there is no want to really change it in either party really;just rethoric. All on ehas to do is look at where the leasderswhip in the congress getsit power and what it spends its time doing. the power bases in either party are not going to give that control over members. Even withi the parties there is no such movement to any degree jst rethoric.The same as they let bils they know will fail or add to them to make them fail to say it got a vote.
