Target: United States Congress

Goal: Cap   spending in order to promote fairness

Capping expenditures for political campaigning has been a hotly contested issue for some time. While proposals for caps have been struck down in the past, a 2012 study by the Huffington Post suggests that 80 percent of voters are in support of limiting the amount of money given to groups that influence the outcome of the election. Before anything can be done, however, changes must be made to the constitution that, as of 2010, removed limits on independent campaign spending due its subsequent infringement of “political speech.”

"One of the two major parties, the Republican Party, has become an insurgent outlier — ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition," they write in their new book, It's Even Worse Than It Looks.

Why am I so sick of all the media attention to the Republican presidential primaries and all the blabbering about President Obama’s advantages and disadvantages for the coming election?  I just cannot get excited.  My answer may also be yours: No matter who wins, our nation loses.

We speak with Tom Hayden, principal author of the Port Huron Statement 50 years ago, the founding document of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). The Statement advocated for participatory democracy and helped launch the student movement of the 1960s. Tens of thousands of copies of the 25,000-word document were printed in booklet form. "It must have been something in the air, something blowing in the wind, and we wanted to write an agenda for our generation," Hayden says. The youth-led movement changed the very language of politics, and its impact is still being felt today. "The logic of an occupation, I think, is if you feel voiceless about a burning issue of great, great importance, and the institutions have failed you, the only way to get leverage for your voice is to occupy their space in order to get their attention," Hayden says. "This goes way back to occupations of factories in the ’30s. ... Occupy Wall Street is only the latest stage." [includes rush transcript]
