It is wrong that our political system requires candidates to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars just to get their message out. This high barrier to entry deprives the public of a diversity of qualified candidates. Money in politics is not a progressive issue or a conservative issue; it is an American issue. I strongly support large-scale reform that creates publicly-financed, transparent systems of campaign financing. I support the DISCLOSE Act which creates transparency regarding funding of campaigns, including the thorough disclosure of contributions from outside spending groups. I support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. I also support exploring innovative ideas like a progressive tax on campaign contributions.
