End Citizens United Applauds ‘We The People’ Reform Package

End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller released the following statement on the introduction of the We The People reform package. The legislation introduced by Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) and Representative David Price (D-NC) includes proposals to comprehensively reform campaign finance laws, increase transparency and accountability in the political system, end extreme partisan gerrymandering, increase voter participation, and strengthen lobbying and revolving door laws. A summary of its provisions is available here.

 

“American families are fed up with the rigged system in Washington. Politicians are bought and sold by the special interests that can spend unlimited money to influence elections. Even foreign governments can funnel secret money into our elections thanks to loopholes in the law. It’s corrupting our democracy to benefit a handful of mega donors at the expense of everyone else and it’s leaving everyday Americans behind.

“This package offers solutions and End Citizens United thanks Senator Udall, Representative Price and the other leaders in Congress behind this bill for standing up for We The People.”
