Getting big money out of politics is essential if we are to ever truly have a government that works for the people. Millions of Americans have their voices silenced by the rich and powerful who can buy influence by simply writing a big enough check. Reforming our campaign finance system should be one of our nation’s top priorities.

 

Getting big money out of politics:

Fight for a Constitutional Amendment that nullifies Citizens United.

Establish public financing of all elections that are state level and higher.

Mandate government contractors disclose their political spending.

End the practice that allows elected officials to receive donations from interest groups associated with the various committees the sit on/chair.

Introduce legislation such as S.1640 “Fair Election Now Act.”

Make Election Day a federal holiday.

Pass legislation that restores voting rights to all felons.

Establish same-day voter registration in all 50 states and U.S. territories.

Allows U.S. citizens on the Island of Puerto Rico to vote without having to come to the continental U.S.
