In 2010, five judges on the Supreme Court remade American politics into a new system where the richest among us have the loudest voices and the most influence. That's not how this country became the best in the world, and it's certainly not a system that will help us overcome the many challenges before us today.
We should be a government of the many, not the money. I will continue to work in Congress with both parties to pass commonsense legislation that will level the political playing field between billionaires and the middle class.
I have cosponsored the Government By the People Act, which encourages working families to play a larger role in our electoral politics, and empowers them to have their voices heard. I have also cosponsored a proposed Constitutional amendment that would give Congress the tools it needs to make campaign finance laws and strike down Citizens United.
