I just took an important pledge that was announced recently on the set of the Colbert Report (fun!). Can you join me?
Every election cycle, special interests pump millions of dollars into congressional campaigns. This allows them to have more influence over our political system than regular folks, and to block real change on issue after issue.
That's why a reform group called Change Congress recently announced a "donor strike". Thousands of people are pledging that we won't donate to any congressional candidate unless they publicly support legislation to make congressional elections citizen-funded, not special-interest funded.
Can you check out the Colbert video and join me in taking this important pledge? It will only take a minute. Here's the link.
