Shocking report – conservatives and liberals can actually agree on something!

The current political environment has seemingly produced partisan battles on every issue. But the Fair Elections Now Coalition, a coalition of good government groups, has found an issue on which the left and right have common ground: the undue influence of money in politics.

Representatives from the coalition went to rallies organized by self-described liberal and conservative groups and found them saying almost exactly the same thing about the need for the Fair Elections Now Act. Check out the video and you’ll be surprised!

The Fair Elections Now Act would make politicians accountable to voters instead of special interests and lobbyists. With Fair Elections, candidates can run competitive campaigns for office by relying on small donations from people back home. The legislation has the broad, bipartisan, and cross-caucus support including lead sponsors Democratic Caucus Chair Rep. Larson (D-Conn.) and Rep. Jones (R-N.C.).

North Carolina Representatives G.K. Butterfield, Walter Jones, Larry Kissell, Brad Miller, David Price and Mel Watt are all co-sponsors.
