Supports Fair Elections Now Act

RECEIVED Thu., Sept. 16, 2010

Dear Editor,
    Next week the Committee on House Administration will consider the Fair Elections Now Act, a sweeping and historic bill that gives a voice to everyday Americans on the right, left, and center by allowing us to take our elections out of the control of big donors and place them back in our hands. The legislation will return us to elections of, by, and for the people, and since it’s paid for with the sale of the unused broadcast spectrum, it doesn’t cost taxpayers a dime – it’s the special interests who take the hit. If you agree that the true partisan debate is less between liberal and conservative but more about public and private interests, then please contact your congressperson.
