End the practice of governing under the influence from mega corporations

Talking Points

Millions of dollars are spent to by mega corporations to lobby Congress to influence public policy for their private profit.

Corporate power is the key factor behind mammoth budgets for military weapons, and the US – Mexican border region’s transformation into a war zone.

Billions of tax payer dollars are awarded to corporations to advance private wealth at the expense of the public good.

RESOLUTION:

We call for transparency and full disclosure in lobbying and campaign contributions in order to end the corrupting practice of governing under the influence of corporate dollars.
