Much has been said in the Report in previous issues about how powerful corporate lobbyists are in our Nation’s Capitol. A recent poll by SurveyUSA about corporate influence over our democracy shows that voters want their leaders to stand up on this critical issue. Here’s what the pollsters found:
An overwhelming 73% of voters, including 67% of Republicans and 71% of independents, are more likely to support a candidate for Congress who works to reduce the influence of corporate lobbyists in Washington. And almost two out of three voters (60%) disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision in the Citizens United case.
There is an ongoing movement by Public Citizen to get Congressional candidates to make a pledge to reduce the influence of lobbyists in our Nation’s Capitol. So far, over 475,000 people have endorsed the Fight Washington Corruption pledge. If you agree with Public Citizen on this issue, ask your Congressional candidates to sign this pledge.
It could be the most important issue in Congressional races this fall.
