Qasim is the only candidate in this race who fully rejects corporate campaign contributions. He stands with the 96% of Democratic voters who believe that we need to overturn Citizens United and get corporate money out of politics. Qasim believes that a Congressperson should only be accountable to their constituents. Unlike others who say they want to end Citizens United but still take corporate money, Qasim walks the walk and refuses to accept a penny from corporate donors. Qasim will:
- Support legislation to end Citizens United and prohibit companies from buying their way into the political process.
- End the revolving door between the Federal Government and lobbying firms.
- Limit candidates self funding their own campaigns and implement the same campaign contribution limits that everyone else has to abide by, because the wealthy don’t deserve more political influence than everyone else.
