#Democracy4All Reaches Important Milestone

People For the American Way and its pro-democracy allies have been working in Congress and the states to boost House and Senate cosponsorship of the Democracy for All constitutional amendment to overturn decisions like Citizens Unitedand get big money out of politics.

This week we watched as Democracy for All reached an important milestone – it now has as many House cosponsors, 130, as it did at the end of the previous Congress.

27 of them have come during the last six weeks alone, since we first launched the campaign:

Representative Pete Aguilar [CA-31]
Representative Joyce Beatty [OH-3]
Representative Robert Brady [PA-1]
Representative Kathy Castor [FL-14]
Representative John Delaney [MD-6]
Representative Suzan DelBene [WA-1]
Representative Marcia L. Fudge [OH-11]
Representative Tulsi Gabbard [HI-2]
Representative Sheila Jackson Lee [TX-18]
Representative William R. Keating [MA-9]
Representative John Lewis [GA-5]
Representative Ted Lieu [CA-33]
Representative Doris O. Matsui [CA-6]
Representative Betty McCollum [MN-4]
Representative Jim McDermott [WA-7]
Representative Gregory W. Meeks [NY-5]
Representative Grace Meng [NY-6]
Representative Seth Moulton [MA-6]
Representative Grace F. Napolitano [CA-32]
Representative Donald Norcross [NJ-1]
Representative Bill Pascrell Jr. [NJ-9]
Representative Scott Peters [CA-52]
Representative Collin C. Peterson [MN-7]
Representative Tim Ryan [OH-13]
Representative Robert C. Scott [VA-3]
Representative Albio Sires [NJ-8]
Representative John A. Yarmuth [KY-3]

The next step is 155 – if Democracy for All gets to 155, then it will have as many cosponsors as all House amendments from the previous Congress combined.
