Do your members of congress believe what they say? Will they do what they promise, or are they just reading from a big donor's script? From Wall Street bailouts to tax breaks for corporations, it's easy to see money's influence on our system--a system that was supposed to represent us all.
Our amendment limits contributions to candidates to an amount the average voter can afford. It also neutralizes SuperPAC's influence on our elected officials. The amendment (CFR28) will uphold free speech while ensuring that each citizen's speech has the same value. With a written amendment to propose, we can more easily win support of our candidates and elected representatives.
Let's target all current state and federal representatives, as well as anyone running for an open seat. Yes, everyone--regardless of party. Let's demand a pledge to pass the amendment, unaltered, as written. Any American can get behind this non-partisan movement to get our country back from big corporations and wealthy donors.
