Take Action: End the Influence of Big Money
Corruption occurs in Washington when wealthy donors and powerful interests use political money to buy influence from officeholders. Creating a new public financing system, will end Washington corruption.
A new small donor, public matching funds system would:
- Provide the funding necessary for House and presidential candidates to run competitive races without becoming obligated to influence-seeking funders;
- Open the door to new candidates from all walks of life by providing them with the ability to raise the money they need to run for office; and
- Greatly reduce the power and influence of big money funders. They would be far less important in elections and have far less influence over government policies if candidates can obtain sufficient campaign funds elsewhere.
