Ever wonder what your lawmakers and politicians give Big Donors and the wealthy in defiance of the public?
*Fact is, big donors favor budget cuts over government job programs. They promote cuts in poverty relief, in education and in health care and no increase in the minimum wage. And for themselves and their corporations, they want more tax cuts.
By very large majorities the public wants exactly the opposite.
Guess who is winning?
**Our politicians vote the way the big money wants, 90% of the time.
***They also spend 40% to 70% of their time raising billions in campaign money, not doing the people’s business.
In business, being paid to follow orders other than your employer’s, is considered bribery.
Yet we, the great American people, tolerate it in our politics and governance.
Ever wonder what's wrong with our politics and governance?
Now you know!
You can join the great cooperation to fix this rotten system at FixOurAmerica.org
Fix Our America is in its initial phase of undertaking a relentless advertising and marketing campaign to rally most Americans to end the rampant “legalized bribery” role of private, corporate and union money in elections - the utterly essential key to real progress on most other important matters. Please donate to buy more air time for our currently running TV spot as your role in ending (rather than passively allowing) money-bought lawmaking and paid-for policies on our major issues - and as your personal way to help restore real America democracy. All donations go solely to purchase media time and space.

*Based on a recent survey by political scientists Benjamin I. Paige and Larry M. Bartels.
**Based on research by campaign finance tracking organizations (see list) as well as by Fix Our America.
***Based on research by clean election organizations and statements by politicians themselves. For example, Democratic Party leaders last December gave to new members of Congress a written statement and chart on how they are to spend their time. Almost 5 hours a day out of an 8 or 9 hour work day was designated for fund raising. This activity takes place on your payroll dime during hours when lawmakers are paid to do your business. In reality, they and their equally-diverted Republican counterparts work primarily for their big campaign donors - without whom they wouldn't be in or be able to return to office in the first place.
Your choice is to keep this system or join us in changing it!
FROM SENATOR SHERROD BROWN (D-Ohio) "....Courage is in pretty short supply anyway in Congress and....if somebody here's got guts and stands up and takes on an interest group that's powerful here, win or lose in terms of the issue... the companies are going to come in and take him out or come close to taking him out." Brown at another point added: "It is not much of an exaggeration that 90% of what gets done in Congress is on behalf of the rich and powerful."
