Applause for ‘By the People’ Proposals
Statement of Lisa Gilbert, Vice President of Legislative Affairs, Public Citizen
Note: Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives today introduced a “By the People” package of democracy reforms.
Americans are sick and tired of living in a plutocracy and are fighting to restore our democracy.
This package brings forth concrete proposals to address the problem of big money dominance of our government. Public Citizen applauds these reforms and will fight to ensure the enactment of these proposals, which would restore a government of, by and for the people – not the superwealthy and giant corporations.
