Create campaign finance donation limits on all state politicians.
PA does not have limits on how much money can be donated to a politician. Our politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, are given millions of dollars every year from special interests, how does this affect our policy ? Over the past 40 years, income inequality has drastically increased and there is a reason for this. The wealthy and powerful are given preferential treatment by our government because of the influence of their money and lobbyists. This is how corporations and the wealthy corrupt our system and govern for the few. This needs to stop.
The same politicians are backed by special interests and win over and over again.
Our politicians should be making decisions independent of any influence and making decisions that are best for ALL of us.
Here is a link where you can see who donated to local politicians; it is very clear who our politicians listen to.
What I can do as a senator:
Help create and cosponsor any bill that has progressive campaign finance reforms.
Make sure that politicians will be held criminally liable for corruption or taking pay to play donations.
I support HB 22/23 and SB 1022/1023 which are bills aimed at ending gerrymandering.
