Support the Fair Elections Now Act


The story is the same whether the issue is climate change, the financial crisis or health care reform – big industry fuels elections and the policy falls far short of what the American people want and need. We can't let pay-to-play politics continue in Washington, D.C. – not with so much at stake.

That's why we're pushing for change through citizen-funded Fair Elections.

The Fair Elections Now Act (H.R. 1826, S. 751, S. 752.), sponsored by Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) and Reps. John Larsen (D-Conn.) and Walter Jones (R-N.C.), presents an exciting new approach to financing campaigns. This bipartisan bill creates an alternative to big special interest money in politics by allowing congressional candidates to run a viable campaign on public funds and unlimited small contributions from ordinary citizens.  

Passing the Fair Elections Now Act will free Congress from spending time chasing contributions from lobbyists and corporate special interest groups, and will return to focus to solving the critical issues confronting our Nation's problems: the economy, health care, and energy.

The time for passing this landmark shift away from pay-to-play politics is now.
Tell your members of Congress to become co-sponsors of the Fair Elections Now Act!
