Buddy Roemer is committed to fighting the corrupting influences in Wall Street and Washington, ending favors to big donors and the misuse of federal funds to benefit major corporations that take jobs overseas while they evade taxes in America. Campaign finance reform and ending unlimited Super PAC campaign contributions made possible by Citizen's United ruling are critical to battling this problem.

* Buddy's comprehensive, six-point package to fight special interests in politics includes:
o Full disclosure of every campaign contribution, no matter how small
o Real-time electronic reporting of campaign contributions, within 48 hours, rather than quarterly
o Elimination of Super PACs entirely
o Limiting PAC donations to candidates to the same as individual contributions.
o Prohibition of registered lobbyists participating in fundraisers
o Criminal penalties for violations of campaign finance rules
o Moreover, Buddy Roemer champions a system of disclosure and limits that applies to every office and level, not just the office or president. In the same vein, he believes that every office should come with term limits to prevent waste and corruption.
