Billionaire corporations aren’t people – let’s get them out of our elections! [Petition]

People ask me all the time how Big Pharma can charge so much for lifesaving drugs or why we can't protect communities from Big Oil pollution?

My response is always the same: follow the money.

At the end of the day, billionaire corporations are playing a larger role in policy than regular people.

The disastrous Citizens United decision, allowing these greedy companies to spend unlimited sums of money to manipulate elections and policy outcomes, has undermined our democracy for far too long. We cannot continue to allow the voices of the people to be drowned out by the exorbitant piles of money corporate special interest groups throw at politicians.

Join me in publicly supporting the effort to remove big money from our elections. By adding your name to our petition, you can help us take a stand against billionaire businesses buying access and influence. It's high time we return power to the people.

We can band together to stop billionaire businesses from buying access and influence in our elections and returning power to the people. That's why I've introduced legislation to do just that.

Americans overwhelmingly support protecting access to abortion, preventing gun violence, and lowering health care costs — but wealthy special interests too often stand in the way of action. Corporations are not people, and they sure as hell shouldn't have more of a say in our elections than everyday Americans.

Sign my petition and call on Congress to give the power back to the people and get big money out of our elections!

For the sake of our democracy and for future generations, we must come together now and demand action.

Yours in the fight,
