Rep. Pramila Jayapal and House Members Respond to Hundreds of Local Resolutions Calling for “We the People” Amendment!
“Our the Constitution says ‘We the People,’ not ‘We the Corporations,’ stated Representative Jayapal. “When I first ran for Congress I took Move to Amend’s Pledge because I believe corporations exist to serve the public welfare, not for the public to serve them. That same year, Move to Amend won a ballot initiative in my home state of Washington — now they’ve passed resolutions in over 700 communities across the United States. It is time for Congress to catch up. We are supposed to be the People’s House and we need to start acting like it. Big corporate money has been working against the interests of Americans for far too long. We have to restore the voice of the people in our democracy, and that starts with passing the We the People Amendment.”
