Who Is Donating To Your Congressman?

Money is power. Money makes the world go round. We, your average Americans, do not like to believe that, but it is true nonetheless.

We write and fax and call our Congressmen and feel like our voice goes unheard. That is in part true. Congress is supposed to be responsive to its constituents, but they need money to get elected. And big donors put big demands on OUR elected officials.

How do we stop this? How do we compete with big money? The first step is knowing who is influencing your Senators and Representatives. Opensecrets.org has culled the information from required government filings and made them available for free to you and I so we know who we are competing with.

OpenSecrets.org is your nonpartisan guide to money’s influence on U.S. elections and public policy. Whether you’re a voter, journalist, activist, student or interested citizen, use our free site to shine light on your government. Count cash and make change.”

    i believe that all state candidates should be limited in term, and they should b limited to raising money from individual in their own home state. This funding state and local races with national money is inheretly unfair and should not be tolerated!
    Term limits are self defining, look at senator Byrd.
    We have an administration that is folling that Alinsky model all too well and if more do not do the research and look into your cadidates,and demand the best candidates, ignore those candidates that engage in politics of persaonal destruction, we are the bosses we MUS demand the best!
