Contrary to popular belief, giving the government more power will not make them less corruptable. Big money influence is a symptom, not the disease.
What exactly has this to do with public funded elections?

They would take the lobbyists out of the system of campaign financing (assuming campaign finance reform is part of the change) and put politicians back in the cross-hairs of voters.
Add election time limits....90-120 days is enough, add 'question time' to make the POTUS, and their policies, accountable and we have the semblance of a government that works.

While we're at it, get rid of the silliness of the archaic 'electoral colleges' and the mid terms should be changed to match the general elections, that would avoid the constant campaigning.
