"We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we cannot have both." - Justice Louis D. Brandeis
As the gulf between the rich and the rest of us grows, our country is facing the disappearance of the middle class and the loss of the American Dream. This is poisoning our society, threatening our economy, and destroying our democracy.
Voters are sick of an economy that no longer works for the 99%, and an election system and government rigged by and for the 1%. We want political leaders who will represent ALL Americans, and will fight for economic fairness and democratic government.
