Patriotic Millionaire on Dems Anti-Corruption “Better Deal” Platform: A Good Start

“The American people did not vote to allow government officials to get rich by selling access to government to the highest bidders”

 

Washington, DC – This afternoon, following the release of the Democratic party’s anti-corruption plank of their “A Better Deal” platform, the Chair of the Patriotic Millionaires and former managing director at BlackRock, Inc., Morris Pearl released the following statement:

 

The anti-corruption proposals introduced by the Democratic party this afternoon are a good start towards curbing the rampant abuse of a lax campaign finance system and a pay-for-play Washington culture. But opposing corruption shouldn’t need to be a partisan platform – every lawmaker from both sides of the aisle should have an equal dedication to cleaning up our government. The American people did not vote to allow government officials to get rich by selling access to government to the highest bidders. The fact that these proposals are even necessary shows just how low the standards for moral authority in Washington have sunk in the last two years.”
