We're standing by, waiting for the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, which could come any day.
It's likely that the court will rule in favor of allowing even more big money in politics, and such a decision would pretty much do for individuals what Citizens United did for corporations. It would end the aggregate political contribution limit, allowing an individual to give up to $3.6 million to candidates, political committees and parties. (The current aggregate limit is now $123,000.)
CWA is part of an effort by many Democracy Initiative allies, including Public Citizen, People for the American Way, moveon.org, Common Cause, Sierra Club, and Demos that are planning events around the country on the day of the ruling. Help make history by attending a rapid response event to take place within a few hours of the McCutcheon ruling. We'll be out there whether the ruling is good or bad. There will be events in cities in every CWA district. Go to www.moneyout-votersin.org to find an event and learn more.
