End Corporate Rule

Written by 

Time and again, whether we are seeking sensible healthcare, environmental, economic, or foreign policy—supported by a majority of Americans—we hit a barrier, because corporate lobbyists and donors have managed to get between our legislators and us. National and local media is right-wing and true journalism has suffered.

End Corporate Rule is part of the We The People NOT We The Corporations PDA platform. We work on the following issues:

  • Overturn Citizens United
  • Protect the Postal Service
  • Negotiate Prescription Drug Prices Under Medicare Part D
  • End the Congress Member to Lobbyist Revolving Door

End Corporate Rule Statistics and Facts

  • 15 States and 500 Jurisdictions have called for a Constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United
  • From 1983 to 2004, due to tax cuts and the defeat of labor unions, distribution of new wealth has gone:
    • 42% to the top 1% of Americans
    • 94% to the top 20% of Americans
    • 6% to the bottom 80% of Americans
  • If Medicare were allowed to negotiate prescription drug prices with drug companies under Medicare Part D, we would save over half a trillion dollars over 10 years
