A new message from your friends at People For the American Way. Dear Anne, We're so close to hitting our goal of 48,000 signatures urging Congress to pass the Government by the People Act, but our deadline is tomorrow! Will you help us reach our goal by signing on to co-sponsor the Government by the People Act? site.pfaw.org/site/R The more signers we have, the more we can show the power of the movement to get big money out of politics. The purpose of this act is to make everyday Americans as powerful as big donors, so that we know our elected officials are accountable to us and not wealthy special interests. Thank you for everything you do! Katie, PFAW ***** Dear Anne, Small-donor matching funds have a proven history of success across the country -- from New York City to Seattle -- and could make all the difference to reverse the damage done by Citizens United in federal elections. Instead of letting special interests control elections with huge amounts of cash, the Government by the People Act will fight big money by giving everyday Americans the same power as big donors. The Government by the People Act will create a six-to-one matching pool for small donations to campaigns, giving your individual political contributions huge impact. And it would mean that candidates who don't have networks of big-money donors and corporations behind them have a fair shake at winning. Add your name: tell Congress to fight big money in politics by passing the Government by the People Act! site.pfaw.org/site/R Imagine knowing that your elected officials are only accountable to you and your voice -- not huge donors and special interests. Passing a federal small-donor matching bill restores balance to our current system and puts democracy back in our hands. Sign the petition and tell Congress that democracy needs to work for ALL Americans. site.pfaw.org/site/R Thank you, Katie O'Connell, Digital Communications Coordinator Donate: site.pfaw.org/site/R                           Do not reply directly to this e-mail.

Dear Anne,

We’re so close to hitting our goal of 48,000 signatures urging Congress to pass the Government by the People Act, but our deadline is tomorrow!

The more signers we have, the more we can show the power of the movement to get big money out of politics. The purpose of this act is to make everyday Americans as powerful as big donors, so that we know our elected officials are accountable to us and not wealthy special interests.

Thank you for everything you do!
