Become a Citizen Co-Sponsor

I introduced the Fair Elections Now Act, a bill that would restore confidence in our broken campaign system, curb the growing influence of big money, and allow candidates to fully devote their time and energy to effectively representing their constituents.

It sounds like common sense, but the truth is, most Republican politicians hate my bill. They like the system that the Supreme Court's misguided Citizens United decision put into place -- a system that makes it completely legal for their powerful corporate friends to pour unlimited amounts of money into elections.

So I have no doubt this is going to be an uphill battle. But it's absolutely worth fighting for before these shadowy corporate interests gain an even stronger hold on our democracy. As progressives, we must band together and build widespread grassroots support for the Fair Elections Now Act. Will you help?
