What do you think about The American Anti-Corruption Act?

The American Anti-Corruption Act is a model policy that sets a framework for city, state, and federal laws to fix our broken political system. It fundamentally reshapes the rules of American politics and restores the people as the most important stakeholders in our political system. An Anti-Corruption Act has four primary goals:
Stop political bribery so special interests can’t use job offers and donations to influence politicians.
End secret money so people know who’s buying political power.
Fix our broken elections so the people, not the political establishment, are the ones in control.
Enforcing the rules of political campaigns and power.
I wonder if the solutions proposed by the plan would be effective if ever implemented. I love the idea of a system in which the people are the most important stakeholders in political systems domestically. However, would this happen? Most likely not because of the fact that everything is bought.
Do you think the solutions proposed by this plan would be effective if implemented? What downsides do you see for this proposed piece of legislation? What are the main roadblocks preventing this legislation from being a major topic of interest in American politics?
