Say No to Special Interests
Former members of Congress Michael Barnes and Connie Morello have an op-ed today in the Baltimore Sun urging Congress to say no to special interests and pass the Fair Elections Now Act (S. 752, H.R. 1826). "Enactment of the Fair Elections Now Act could drastically change the status quo in Washington. Americans could run for federal office even if they are not independently wealthy or do not have access to massive amounts of campaign cash. Once in office, they could devote virtually all of their time to doing the work that we elected them to do. Most important, they would be free to represent their constituents, not large corporations or unions seeking influence over the congressional agenda." Click here for the full op-ed.
