The Government By The People Act will match small-dollar donations with public funds, turning a $25 contribution into $175 -- or $100 into $700. This will incentivize candidates to pay attention to everyday voters, not big-money donors. It helps overturn the McCutcheon and Citizens United decisions and starts to get big money out of our politics.
The Government By The People Act is already endorsed by over 40 progressive, labor, and good government organizations -- including the Sierra Club and the NAACP. It’s time for Congress to recognize massive public outrage over the horrible McCutcheon decision and pass this bill.
