Money in politics
- Members of Congress have virtually no time to interact with each other, let alone the people they represent — especially those of modest means
- This limited interaction contributes to the hyper-partisanship that is driving the dysfunction in Congress and deepening the divisions in our country
- Ultimately, more people are disengaging from the political process as a result
- Require stricter disclosure requirements and creating a public financing system that would empower small donors like you
- Slow the revolving door between government and lobbying and enhancing the disclosure rules that govern members of Congress as well as lobbyists
How can you help?
- Question candidates about their positions on campaign finance reform
- Volunteer and donate to candidates who are committed to removing the corrupting influence of money on our politics
- Vote for candidates who are willing to join us in this fight
Even if campaign finance reform is not your top priority in the upcoming election, I encourage you to make it your number two issue. Chances are, nothing meaningful will happen on the issue you care most about without making real progress on campaign finance and ethics reform.
