The Supreme Court recently ruled that aggregate contribution limits to political candidates are unconstitutional. Although we are disappointed by this outcome, we will continue to push for real-time transparency of hard money contributions.

Tell the Super Committee It’s Time for Transparency

It doesn’t matter if you’re in a Super Committee member’s district -- because the Super Committee cuts out the normal congressional process, they’re all the representation that we have. Share your story of how their work will affect you and why you deserve an open and transparent process that includes our five common-sense demands for a better process.

We are collecting your feedback on what you would like to tell the Super Committee. Your comments will also be forwarded to the Super Committee’s staff.

  • We've included an example message so you can customize it or write your own.

The Super Committee is almost at the deadline to begin voting on their final recommendations about how to cut at least $1.2 trillion from the national deficit. Time is running out, but they have yet to be open and transparent about the millions of dollars the special interests have been pouring into their coffers to influence their decisions.

Last week Sunlighters around the country went straight to the source to demand transparency – the district offices of Super Committee members. Watch and share with your friends!

We’ve been talking to Super Committee members and their staff for months about the five common-sense demands we have for a better process:

  1. Live webcasts of all official meetings and hearings
  2. The Committee's report should be posted for 72 hours before a final committee vote
  3. Disclosure of every meeting held with lobbyists and other powerful interests
  4. Disclosure of campaign contributions as they are received (on their campaign websites)
  5. Financial disclosures of Committee members and staffers
