We Support the Restore Democracy Resolution

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Donald Trump

Petition Statement

We encourage every member of House of Representatives to sign on to H. Res. 343 as a cosponsor and to vote for its passage. We ask for the same in the Senate as well. Then may it become the law of the land.

Overturning the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision that declared corporations to be ‘people’ and money to be ‘free speech’ with respect to the right to donate money to Congressional campaigns.

Establishing a public-private system of campaign financing, making candidates answerable to the people – not wealthy special interests.

Restricting campaign advertising spending to a period 60 days before an election.

Prohibiting incumbents and challengers from raising campaign funds while Congress is in session.

Ending political gerrymandering of Congressional districts that have made all but 35 districts ‘safe’ for incumbents at election time.

Encouraging nationwide voter participation by requiring states to establish online voter registration systems.

Returning the U.S. House to a system of ‘Regular Order’ under which no bill can be considered on the Floor of the House without first going through the committee process – under an open rule – with amendments debated fully and openly and given an up or down vote. Conference committees would be required to meet in full, and resolve House-Senate differences with a vote of the full committee.
There are currently 2,761 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

We have all been impacted by money and its influence on our nation's politics. It is clear. The time for change is now.
