The Broken Senate

August 6, 2009

This 113th Congress is one of the most unproductive congresses in history, and the 60-vote filibuster rule in the US Senate is one of the reasons why. On July 10th at the National Press Club in Washington DC, Common Cause convened a panel discussion on the Senate minority's abuse of the filibuster rule that has fundamentally changed the legislative playing field.

Corrine Brown Betrayed Her Constituents Out of a Sense of Entitlement

December 4, 2017; Press Release, Status Update

The sentencing of former Congresswoman Corrine Brown today to 5 years in prison is not about misplaced trust by her, but misplaced trust by her District 5 constituency and all Floridians that her long career in Congress was in her own self-interest and not in service to them. Brown betrayed her constituents who sent her to Washington to represent their interests, not her own. The sense of entitlement that allowed Brown to participate in this fraud to enrich herself in the name of underprivileged children is extremely disappointing.

Special Interest Tax Giveaway Also Thrusts the Pulpit into Politics

November 2, 2017

Buried in the final pages of the tax bill’s handouts to deep-pocketed special interests is a troubling provision that would allow houses of worship to actively engage in partisan politicking. For more than a half century the Johnson Amendment has prohibited 501(c)(3)s, including religious organizations, from participating in political campaigns. If this bright line is removed the abuses will inevitably follow and the loopholes will be expanded. Overwhelmingly members of the clergy support the Johnson Amendment prohibition on political activity but there will inevitably be bad actors and money will change hands for endorsements and more. The mixing of partisan politics, religion and money would not end well and has no business in this legislation.
