Sign the petition and tell Jim Lehrer: ask this question during next week’s presidential debate.
“You’ve discussed your positions on the economy and our healthcare system. But many Americans question how you can reach your goals when Washington is so broken.

Here in Colorado, voters have put a measure on the ballot instructing members of Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and allow limits on campaign spending. Do you support a constitutional amendment? Do you favor public funding of elections? If not, what specifically would you do to reduce the role of powerful special interests in Washington and in our elections, and how high a priority will it be in your administration?”
