Take a stand for campaign finance reform

“The McCutcheon decision is less about free speech than about giving those few people with the most money the loudest voice in politics” – New York Times, 4.2.14

Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our democratic process.

The Supreme Court’s decisions in Citizens United and McCutcheon are two of the most recent in a long string of rulings that threaten to undermine our campaign finance system and dismantle the safeguards protecting our democracy from the corrosive influence of money in politics.

And the Supreme Court and the Republican Party are not finished yet. As Justice Thomas mentioned in his opinion in McCutcheon, and as Reince Priebus has recently stated, their goal is the elimination of all restrictions on campaign finance. That means the Koch brothers and others can give tens of millions of dollars directly to any candidate they want.

Congress cannot sit idly by while the Supreme Court gives millionaires and billionaires the ability to use money to push their anti-middle class, special interest agendas.

Money is not free speech and the super wealthy should not have special license to spend money in order to push their special interest agendas on the middle class.

That’s why I’m joining Senators Tom Udall and Bernie Sanders to call for real, meaningful campaign finance reform.
