Even The Playing Field...You Bet`cha !

The System we use to Elect our Members of Congress is Broken.

Lawmakers today seem more interested in Wall Street’s profits than Main Street’s progress — a bias that has been borne out in an economic “recovery” of corporate profits while unemployment numbers lag far behind.

Thankfully, the Fair Elections Now Act, a bill that would significantly repair our broken election system, was re-introduced in Congress today.

Tell your members of Congress to support the Fair Elections Now Act.

The Fair Elections Now Act would enable candidates for Congress to avoid taking cash from corporate lobbyists, CEOs and other special interests. Instead, they would run viable campaigns based on small-dollar donations from real people, matched by public funds. Instead of spending time hitting up special interests for cash, candidates for elected office would be able focus their attention on voters in the communities they represent. In the wake of the unlimited corporate spending allowed by the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Fair Elections Now Act is a particularly essential reform (in addition to a constitutional amendment, increased disclosure and shareholder protections).
