Click here to add your name:Thanks to the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizens United, special interest spending in our elections has absolutely exploded.
But now, in its misguided decision in McCutcheon v. FEC, the Supreme Court is again chipping away at the safeguards protecting our election system from the corrupting influence of money.
Momentum is building for real, lasting, wholesale campaign finance reform. Today is your chance to weigh in on the debate.
Sign the petition and demand that Washington restore the authority of the people to regulate campaign finance.
Reforming our broken campaign finance system has always been one of my highest priorities. In Congress I’ve led the charge for a constitutional approach to put a stop to Citizens United. And you can be sure I’ll be do everything in my power to fight back against McCutcheon as well.
Our elections should be about which candidate has the best ideas, not who can collect the most campaign contributions.
Super-wealthy individuals shouldn’t have the power to shift the focus of an election away from what matters to the middle class just by cutting a check. Washington needs to pass laws that will strengthen our campaign finance system to stop the spread of money in politics and protect the interests of the middle class.
Over the coming weeks and months, the debate over money and politics is going to be front-and-center. I want to make sure you have your say. Sign our petition demanding that Washington shine a light on the dark corners of our campaign finance system.
Thank you for your support on this issue.
