Problem: Congress isn't working for most people
A majority of those we elect to Congress aren’t able to do their job to equitably represent the American people. A minority in the Senate are able to block legislation on issues important to us all, even when these actions are supported by a majority of Americans and their elected representatives. Moreover, many have been compromised (corrupted) and don’t want a more open, fair, equitable and competitive political process that would better serve citizens. That would make it harder for them to get reelected and stay in power.
Our political system gives many incentive to act in ways that place their own re-election interests, those of their wealthy and influential campaign funders, and those of their political party above the common, broad interests of the American people.
