• Demand the U.S Congress Pass S.J. Res. 29
    The Supreme Court may treat corporations like people who can spend whatever they want on elections, but the American people don't have to accept it, said Democratic senators who proposed a constitutional amendment Tuesday to retake control of campaign spending. The proposed amendment would grant Congress the power to regulate campaign contributions to federal candidates and expenditures concerning federal elections; the same powers would be granted to the states with respect to state elections. The amendment would essentially reverse the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United ruling, which found that corporations have the right to spend unlimited sums of money in federal elections.

  • Governor Abercrombie Do Not Let the AG Sign The Multi State Bank Settlement
    Dear AG of Hawaii We need a more comprehensive investigation before the financial institutions at the heart of the crisis are granted broad releases from liability. The Times editorial describes why Eric Schneiderman, Beau Biden and Kamala D. Harris, Attorney General of California, have refused to join the 47 other attorneys general who have agreed to the settlement. The Times editorial stated, The proposed settlement reportedly would prevent the states from pursuing claims against banks relating to fraud or abuse in the origination of loans during the bubble. It would also prevent states from pursuing claims for foreclosure abuses, like improper denial of loan modifications. And it would prevent them from pursuing banks' misconduct in their dealings with the Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems database, or MERS, a land registry system implicated in bubble-era violations of tax, trust and property law. redress -- could be impeded or blocked by the other constraints. Once one avenue of inquiry is closed off, it can be difficult to ascertain what happened along other points in the mortgage chain. In effect, the legal waivers being contemplated would let the banks pay up to sweep wrongdoing under the rug.

  • Personal Financial Information "Opt-In"
    Corporate America is all about private property rights... except when it comes to your personal financial information. They lobbied Congress to effect the current "Opt-Out" system where they have free use of your personal information unless you go through their procedure to restrict its use. That's not right. That information is your property and they should get your permission to use it.

  • Congess and the states: amend the Constitution to remove money from politics
    The Supreme Court has made clear in such decisions as Citizens United and Buckley v Valeo that the First Amendment to the Constitution prevents Congress from restricting the rights of individuals and organizations, including corporations, to finance political campaigns and issue advocacy. Therefore the only way to eliminate the influence of money on American politics is to pass a new amendment to the Constitution.

  • Pass Amendment To Undo Citizens United
    The worst decision the Supreme Court has ever made. Going against all prior decisions of controlling and accounting for the amount of campaign funds given, this court voted for unlimited, unaccountable amounts of money that Congress may accept. Two judges making this decision should have recused themselves because each was a guest at a Koch brothers function before making the decision.

  • Pledge to Vote Yes On 1!
    The right to vote and choose our leaders is at the heart of what it means to be an American. If we don’t like the decisions our elected officials are making, we can simply vote them out. Politicians and the corporations who bankroll their campaigns are now trying to make it harder for working Mainers to vote, by taking away our time-honored right to register on Election Day. They know that if we have less of a voice, it will be easier for them to stay in power. That way they can continue to give tax breaks to the wealthy, and keep ignoring the needs of the other 99%. Join thousands of other Mainers who are promising to support same-day registration this Tuesday by signing this Yes on 1 pledge. Use the form above to add your name.

  • Criminal Prosecution of Executives of Companies Committing Fraud
    The vast majority of corporations --- banks, drug companies, hospital corporations, etc. -- settle federal and state fraud lawsuits --- by paying fines and penalties. This punishment has proven to be impotent in deterring these crimes. The massive penalties are passed on to consumers and taxpayers. Unless and until executives are threatened with imprisonment, egregious practices of this nature will continue. To these corporations, fines and legal expenses are just another cost of doing business.
