An appeal for support

Sen. Rob Portman has distinguished himself as a bipartisan legislator. Now Americans need his leadership in supporting an amendment that will restore our democracy.

A 28th Amendment, the Democracy for All Amendment, has been proposed in Congress by a bipartisan group of lawmakers. The amendment establishes that corporations are not people and money is not speech, allowing Congress and the state to put limits on campaign financing. The implications of passing the amendment through Congress and ratifying it are wide-ranging, affecting issues such as partisan gerrymandering, climate change, and income and wealth inequality.

As a supporter of the cross-partisan group, American Promise, I ask Portman to co-sponsor of the Democracy for All Amendment in the Senate. We want our elected officials to listen to “We the People” rather than wealthy individuals, corporations, unions and special interest groups. Portman, join our cause for needed change in our political system.
