In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of allowing corporations to spend unlimited secret money in elections. Since then, we've seen the rise of Super PACs and unprecedented amounts of corporate money in elections.

John is working to change that by leading the effort to ensure that candidates are responsive to the American people -- not to Washington lobbyists and special interests. The Fair Elections Now Act, which John 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.

The American government must work for the American people and it works best when there is transparency and bipartisanship. That's why John has fought for government accountability legislation to ensure that the events that caused the 2008 financial crisis can be avoided in the future.
