If we can keep winning these fights at the state and local level, then one day soon the same change is going to come to Congress. That's why I introduced the bipartisan Government By the People Act (H.R. 20), which has more than 160 cosponsors in the House of Representatives and the support of over 50 national membership organizations advocating for the environment, education, working families, civil rights, clean government and more. Much work remains before we achieve passage of the Government By the People Act. But a "yes" vote on Question A in Howard County, a stone's throw from the nation's capital, would send a powerful signal to my colleagues on the Hill that reforming the way we fund campaigns is a winning issue — an antidote to the deep cynicism and frustration felt by so many Americans.
