Why do we need to buy political office?

I am becoming quite curious about who would possibly want to vote into our highest government office, a candidate who spends more to buy himself or herself the seat, than they stand to get in wages for the length ot their term. If they have that much money, why not campaign to serve at no pay, and donate the normal pay for that office during their term to fund some of the education, housing, job-creating, etc. projects the government seems to lack the financial means to cover? I'll bet they would receive the majority of the votes! Makes it sound as though we now have to accept only those who can buy their way in, to govern us. Just does not seem right.
