Excerpts from Congressman Deutch's testimony:
"Our amendment would level the playing field. It would promote political equality. And it would protect the integrity of our government institutions and elections."
"The Democracy for All Amendment is necessary because your status in our democracy should not depend upon your status in our economy. Whether you work three jobs and barely get by— or you own three homes and barely work—the eyes of our law, the eyes of our government, and our elections must see all Americans as equal. This amendment will get money out of our elections and, most importantly, it will put voters back in charge."
