Currently, our U.S. Congress is broken and corrupt. For the past three years, OpenCongress has successfully led the fight to fix it.
By broken, we mean that the anti-democratic rules of the U.S. Senate -- for example, the dreaded filibuster -- have crashed the legislative system. By corrupt, we don't mean one political party or another, but rather that the ethics rules of Congress have crumbled in a wave of campaign contributions and corporate lobbying. Last week, a Gallup poll of confidence in public institutions rated Congress dead last.
The problems are clear: a lack of transparency in Congress and too much money in politics. OpenCongress is a solution. We've already become a leader in open and accountable government, but like you, we want to do more. Can you donate to fixing Congress?
