Big News: Tuesday night, I'll be on a special call with Anna Galland and fellow MoveOn members like you to talk about what's next for The Big Picture: Ideas to Save the Economy and our upcoming national teach-ins. Click here for information and to RSVP.
Now for our last video in this series!
Saving our economy—and, in fact, our democracy—rests on our ability to get big money out of politics.
Big money in politics affects everything we care about—from forcing polluters to pay for poisoning our environment to securing debt-free higher education to busting up the biggest banks. Everything.
The 2016 elections are gearing up to be the most expensive in history. Candidates from both political parties and at all levels—national, state, and increasingly even local—will be dependent on wealthy donors to rise above the fray. And even candidates with good intentions will have to repay campaign donations with access and favors. It's a broken system that needs fixing. And we must move quickly.
Get Big Money Out of Politics is incredibly timely: President Obama is considering an executive order that would require federal contractors to fully disclose political spending—an idea I discuss in the video and one that has spurred MoveOn member action. Just this week, 26 senators and 104 representatives sent a letter to the president urging his immediate action.
Look, this one is a biggie. If you're like me and you're ready to elevate the growing call to get big money out of politics, please watch and share this video right now.
Thanks for all you do.
