Healthcare-NOW! has endorsed the Fair Elections Now Act as one way to loosen the grip of for-profit interests over our democracy.
The Fair Elections Now Act, a voluntary system for publicly funding congressional election campaigns, has been introduced in Congress and is supported by the national campaign finance reform groups. The Act allows candidates to run for Congress on a blend of small private donations (under $100) and matching public funds. The Act has over 140 co-sponsors in the House and 11 in the Senate.
