Take Action:

The Supreme Court has just given big corporations even more influence in our electoral process. The Court has overturned decades of precedent to make sure corporations have the same political rights as living, breathing people.

It's time for Congress to act swiftly and powerfully to make sure voters--not corporations--have control of our elections.

Act now - pass the Fair Elections Now Act.

2. We have a new Senate cosponsor--Senator Ted Kaufman from Delaware.
(Although he will not be running in November, Senator Kaufman has made some terrific floor speeches on what is needed for real financial reform. The Senate will miss his tremendous contributions in this regard. I know Vice President Joe Biden must be proud of his service.)

3. I like Dick Durbin.
Funny, smart, and noble in his own way. I'm so proud of him.

4. Have you emailed your Congress members to ask them to support Durbin's Fair Election Now Act?
