Represent.Us: The Campaign to pass the American Anti-Corruption Act

See on Scoop.itDidYouCheckFirst

Get money out of politics at Represent.Us, the campaign to pass the American Anti-Corruption Act – a bold new law that puts an end to business as usual in Washington.

Greg Russak‘s insight:

The system is broken. Our government has been corrupted by money. We need Congress to solve the nation’s problems, instead our politicians are out raising money for re-election. The country is run by lobbyists – fighting on behalf of big oil, pharmaceuticals, military contractors, labor unions, trial lawyers, insurance companies, food corporations, and on and on.

 

We may never get rid of lobbyists and big financial donors. But we all agree: citizens should come first.

 

Our government is corrupt. We need to fix it. We have a plan. We need your help.
