The vote is tomorrow. We need your voice now. Tell Congress to VOTE yes on H.R. 1 - For the People.
Last year during the elections, you used your voice at the ballot box and declared, loud and clear for all to hear, that corruption in Washington is the top issue plaguing our government.
Democrats are taking a giant first step to fulfill their promise of cleaning up Trump’s Washington. (Unlike Trump, Democrats really do want to "drain the swamp".)
And that’s what their bill -- known in Washington-speak as the “For the People Act of 2019” (H.R. 1) -- will do. It returns power to you, the American citizen, by ending Washington’s most corrupt practices and making it easier for Americans to participate in their democracy.
Corporate lobbyists, wealthy special interests and greedy politicians like Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who benefit from the current system cry that this a “power grab.” Well, they’re partly right. It does strip them of their power -- and gives it back to the people where it belongs. It’s a power grab for the people.
Contact your member of Congress today and tell them to vote YES on the anti-corruption For the People Act of 2019 (H.R. 1). Tell them you support the Power Grab For the People!
