Government Reform

Government Reform Logo

While serving in Congress I pledge to reject contributions from political action committees (PACs) and lobbyists because I believe that we need to remove the influence of corporate money in politics. That is why I created the bipartisan Congressional No PAC Caucus. Many of the problems in Congress could be solved if we had politicians who were not indebted to the big corporations and special interests.

I also believe that instituting term limits for both the House and Senate is an integral step towards fixing stagnation in government. Serving in Congress is meant to be a public service, not a lifelong career, and I will work to make sure that the new ideas and energy will continue to move our country forward.
