Have you heard a corporation speak?

These days, it seems like our politics have gotten a lot more vicious and a lot less responsive to the concerns of everyday Americans. Yet, corporations and special interest groups seem to get exactly what they want from Congress. Why is that?

The answer (as it is more often than not) is money.

14 years ago today, the Supreme Court handed down a disastrous decision in Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission; removing limitations on the amount of money corporations and special interest groups can spend on elections. The ruling drowned out actual people's voices and even went as far as to say that corporations are people who are entitled to free speech. I mean, really?

Let's make something crystal clear: corporations are not people, they are not entitled to the same rights and privileges that people are entitled to, and they most certainly do not deserve an outsized say in our elections.

I believe strongly that elections should be decided and policy should be made by the will of the people, not special interests. That's why I don't take a dime of corporate PAC money. I listen to you. We're a people-powered movement, will you make a donation today to show our strength?

Americans deserve better than a system that can be bought and sold to the highest bidder, and I'm fighting to ensure that the voice of the people once again rings throughout the halls of Congress. Together, we can rebuild a system that puts people over special interests.

More soon,
