The American government must work for the American people. That's why I fought for government accountability legislation that will ensure that we learn from what went wrong on Wall Street to protect working Americans from similar events in the future. I also am leading the effort to ensure that candidates are responsible to the American people -- not to Washington lobbyists and special interests. The Fair Elections Now Act, which I introduced with Republican Congressman Walter Jones, will do just that. It provides a grassroots low donor focus and matching election funds to qualifying candidates to ensure that more time is spent working for constituents, and not on fundraising.
