U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s McCutcheon v. FEC ruling:
"With today's McCutcheon decision, the Supreme Court has taken a further step in limiting the ability of the voice of everyday Americans to be heard in our electoral process," said Rep. Pascrell. "When coupled with the Citizens United case, today's decision further undermines our democracy and shifts power to a handful of billionaires at the expense of the public interest. We must break this dangerous dependence on wealthy special interests by passing legislation like the Government by the People Act and restore the voice of the people."
