Americans need the Congress of Tomorrow

The American people depend upon their representatives to be their voice in Congress, but as partisan politics force crisis after crisis, lawmakers are unable to fulfill this responsibility. The public is losing faith, with only a 17% approval rating from constituents. It’s time for a real solution: A committee tasked with creating the Congress of Tomorrow. Our government was created for the people, but as Congress continues down this path, it fails to serve the people.

It’s time for this to change. That’s why we need to establish a new committee dedicated to reform our government from within and instill lasting change to make Congress work. The committee will be charged with proposing reforms that will enable Congress to avoid partisan-driven crises, commit to responsible budgeting, and once again respond to the immediate needs of our citizenry.

Our reform effort must make its way through the same antiquated process it is attempting to overhaul. This requires widespread support from both chambers of Congress and their constituents, joining together to make known the vital need for change. A resolution to establish a committee to reform Congress was already endorsed by nearly 70 lawmakers this year.  With the opportunity presented by the start of a new Congress in January, NOW is the moment for us to build a critical mass of support for a Congress of Tomorrow!

From healthcare and immigration to the national debt, today’s Congress is facing critical questions that will define us as a nation. If we work together, we can create a system capable of solving our problems once and for all. The time to create the Congress of Tomorrow is now.
