Take action now to tell your Representative to oppose the elimination of the presidential public financing system.
The House of Representatives is expected to vote this week on legislation to eliminate the presidential public financing system which has served America well since 1976. No hearings or committee meetings are scheduled in advance of the vote.
Public financing has allowed candidates to raise the funds needed to wage competitive campaigns. The system has not only promoted competition in elections and provided more meaningful choices to voters but has also helped to ensure that more candidates have the opportunity to share their views with the electorate.

While the system is in need of repair, it is not acceptable for House leaders to destroy the system without one minute of hearings or a single committee meeting. Repair legislation is expected soon that takes into account the changes that have occurred in presidential campaigns in recent years. It is this legislation that the House should be focusing on.
