Should there be limits on how mucha person can give in campaign contributions?

"I don't know that it's fair to put a hard cap on how much money you can spend."

Natasha von Kaeppler, Palo Alto

"I think caps would be appropriate, just to make things fair. Just because otherwise, the money outweighs the votes."

Robert Zanutta, Menlo Park

"While I understand that America is a democratic and capitalist nation, and people have the right to do what they want with their money, I think for the purposes of elections, individual caps should be in place, especially given scandals with money laundering and things like that."

Mackenzie Culler, Winston-Salem, N.C.

"Not having a limit probably just allows people to put their money where they want to. I guess it's always controversial."

Diane Huynh, Milpitas

"I think people with money are the ones that influence things. I think it is crazy not to have any limits at all."

Tricia Gregory, Gainesville, Fla.
