End outside money in elections

Petition Text

Make free time on radio and TV for all candidates for public office the law of the land. These outlets earn billions from broadcasting. Let us return to public interest broadcasting as the duty of networks. Then our public servants can return to carrying out the public’s business.

Why is this important?

Most of Congress’s time is now spent chasing money for campaigns. We cannot have a government controlled by money and expect to preserve democracy.
