Citizen Take Action is committed to our plan of passing the Restore Democracy Amendment and getting big money out of politics because big money disrupts the fundamental relationship between us and our elected officials. Our elected representatives are supposed to be responsive to We The People and do what is in our best interests. But due to poorly reasoned Supreme Court decisions like Citizens United, corporations, unions, and ultra wealthy individuals have gained too much influence over our elected officials. As a result, many laws and policies now favor powerful moneyed interests at the expense of the majority of Americans.
Because big money in politics is a problem that prevents progress on so many other problems–climate change, rising health care costs, economic inequality and more–we must solve the underlying problem first. In order to protect the integrity of our democracy we must pass a constitutional amendment that undoes the damage caused by Citizens United. That’s why Citizens Take Action is proud to present the Restore Democracy Amendment!
The Restore Democracy Amendment is the best proposed constitutional amendment aimed at getting big money out of politics. It will overturn Citizens United, drastically diminish the power of Super PACs, and because it goes after big money from both corporations and unions, it has critical bipartisan appeal. Our plan is to gain the support of legislators all over the country. But we need your help!
We need dedicated individuals like you to help us spread the word and get legislators on the same page in support of the amendment. So if you want to help us get big money out of politics and reclaim our democracy please sign up to volunteer and make a donation to power this campaign. If we work together we truly can get big money out of politics and restore government of, by, and for the people!
