Campaign Finance Reform
I am a strong proponent of campaign finance reform. Corporations are not people, and should not be treated as such. We must overturn the disastrous Citizens United ruling. Particularly in the wake of the Citizens United ruling, I have been an advocate of working towards the public funding of our elections and have personally chosen to not accept any money for my campaign from fossil fuel companies. Public funding of campaigns would allow for a much more just and equitable system for not only candidates, but more importantly, for the American people.
Not only do we need more accountability when it comes to finances and donors, but American elections would also benefit from requiring that all ads, including those aired online, are properly regulated and defined.
We must stop major lobbies and corporations from having gross amounts of power in our election system. Through an equitable campaign finance reform plan, our nation will benefit.
