Stop the "Don't Let the People Decide" Act

From DownsizeDC:
Congress apparently likes irony. Why else would a bill that would narrow our choice of candidates in elections, be named the Let the People Decide Clean Campaign Act? This bill, H.R. 4694, would prohibit private donations to candidates to the House of Representatives, give a funding advantage to the incumbent over the major-party challenger, prohibit individuals from using their own money independently to support or criticize a candidate's views, and imposes absurdly small spending caps on most third party and independent campaigns. The laws we already have overwhelmingly favor incumbents and the two major parties who make government bigger year after year; this bill would put the nail in the coffin of all meaningful opposition. We must let everyone in Congress know that this is completely unacceptable to the American people.

To find out more and stop this abomination, go here.
