Get Big Money out of Politics
Initiative 735 is a grassroots movement to make Washington the 18th state to ask Congress to overturn Citizens United.
in 2010, the US Supreme Court ruled in Citizens United v FEC that corporations and unions could spend unlimited amounts of money to advocate for or against political candidates. It has led to obscene amounts of money being poured into elections. It’s part of the reason why the amount spent on elections by campaigns and outside groups grew 555% from 1984 to 2014.
People who can’t afford exorbitant donations are being pushed out.
