Elizabeth Warren: 32 Outspent 3.7 Million

Posted by admin on Monday, February 1, 2016

In 2012 about 3.7 million Americans gave modest donations under $200 to President Obama and Mitt Romney. Those donations add up to three hundred and thirteen million dollars. In the same election 32 people gave monster donations to super PACs. 32 people spent slightly more on the 2012 elections than the 3.7 million people who sent modest dollar donations to their preferred presidential candidate

When 32 people can outspend 3.7 million citizens it’s pretty obvious that democracy is in real danger
— Elizabeth Warren

Six Things Can Be Done Right Now:

1. Pass Senator Durbins “Fair Elections Now Act”
2. Pass Senator Whitehouse “Disclose Act”
3. Pass Senator Menendez “Shareholder Protection Act”
4. President Obama Sign Executive Order Requiring Government Contractors to Disclose Political Spending
5. FEC Require Public Corporations to Disclose Corporate Money Spent in Elections
6. FEC Require Political Ads to include Disclosure of People or Corporations that Paid for them
