Get Money Out of Politics

The most important issue facing our country is that there is too much money in politics. Corporations can spend almost limitless money to influence the election process, which gives them enormous power over our democracy. Not only does this money limit which candidates can get elected, it also affects which bills candidates support once in office; candidates are much more likely to support bills that are favorable to donors who helped them get elected.  This is a system of political corruption and legalized bribery and it needs to end. 

If I were elected, I would sponsor a constitutional amendment that establishes that corporations are not natural persons, that money is not speech, and that the government shall regulate campaign expenditures so that all people can participate in the political process equally, regardless of economic status.

Corporate money and corporate influence are undermining our democracy. It's time to end corporate personhood. It's time to get money out of politics and save our democracy.
