Kip, at the Wide Middle, invites others to share Questions for the Candidates. This comes the very day that I have a question that I would ask any congressional candidate.
What part, or parts of the Change Congress movement would you pledge to support (if any). The four principles of the movement are that:
- Candidates and congressmen should accept no money from lobbyists or PACs
- Congress should vote to end earmarks
- Candidates should agree to run publicly-financed campaigns
- Congress should support reform to increase Congressional transparency
Candidates and citizens can pledge to support any combination of the above principles and citizens should hold candidates responsible for their campaign promises (this pledge and others).
