PETITION: End Citizens United!

2014 Outside Spending Hits the $100 Million Mark, 5/30/2014

Citizens United opened the floodgates for special interest groups to spend virtually unlimited, undisclosed amounts of money in American elections. And those groups have responded by pouring tens of millions of dollars into campaigns to influence voters around the country.

The U.S. Senate is poised to take action to curb the effects of Citizens United and restore some sanity to our campaign finance system. Now is the time to make our voices heard.

Members of Congress:

Ever since the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United, our political system has been dominated by attack ads paid for by groups that don’t tell voters what they want or why.

We cannot let these groups, backed by the likes of the Koch brothers and Karl Rove, continue to poison our democratic process. Elections belong to voters, not special interest groups.

Reform our campaign finance system and put an end to the disastrous effects of Citizens United.
