Urge Sen. Portman to support all Ohioans

NOTE: The following letter to the editor was submitted by Ginger Packert of Norwalk.

Sen. Rob Portman has distinguished himself as a bi-partisan legislator. Now Americans need his leadership in supporting an amendment that will resolve our democracy.

A 28th Amendment, the Democracy for All Amendment, has been proposed in Congress by a bipartisan group of lawmakers. The amendment established that corporations are not people and money is not speech, allowing Congress and the states to put limits on campaign financing. The implications of passing the amendment through Congress and ratifying it are wide ranging, affecting issues such as partisan gerrymandering, climate change and income and wealth inequality.

As a supporter of the cross-partisan group, American Promise, I ask Sen. Portman to become a co-sponsor of the Democracy for All Amendment in the Senate. We want our elected officials to listen to “We, the People” rather than wealthy individuals, corporations and special interest groups. Sen. Portman, join our cause for need change in our political system.

If you’d like to urge Sen. Portman to remember to support all Ohioans, you can call his office(s) at 202-224-3353 or 1-800-205-6446.
