Voters need to know what Republicans did this week.

This week, Republicans voted against the constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. They put the interests of a couple dozen billionaires over the needs of hundreds of millions of Americans to have a say in our government.

Democrats like Senator Al Franken and the others on the right are demonstrating that using big, bold ideas like public financing of elections and a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United is the way to excite the electorate -- and win elections.

We're helping them and other progressive candidates on the campaign trail educate voters about what Republicans just did -- and that electing progressives is how we fix it.

Will you donate $3 each to help progressive Democrats campaign boldly on this issue?
