Long story short: tell President Biden to force federal contractors to disclose their campaign donations, and tell your Congressfolk to pass the Overdraft Protection Act and the PFAS Definition Improvement Act. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
The Daily Kos Democracy Project helps you tell President Biden to make federal contractors disclose their campaign donations, which, since a lot of corporations take taxpayer money, will do a great deal for campaign finance reform. You’ll recall that our Securities and Exchange Commission (or SEC) debated this very matter last decade, and received over a million public comments favoring disclosure which was about a million more than they typically get – and then did nothing. You’ll also remember that President Obama mooted issuing an Executive Order about the matter, and then did nothing. Thus we must pressure President Biden to do the right thing.
Public Citizen helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 4277, the House Overdraft Protection Act. People get slammed with unexpected overdraft fees these days, and not because they're “bad at managing money” – I’m going to kill that idea dead before I’m gone! – but because they don’t make enough money. The House Overdraft Protection Act would help fix one part of that problem by (among other actions) limiting overdraft fees, banning overdraft fees resulting solely from debit holds, and forcing corporations to disclose overdraft fees as part of overdraft coverage plans. You mean banks don’t do that already? you may well ask. No, they do not! And that’s why our government has to make them.
Finally, Food and Water Action helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 5987, the PFAS Definition Improvement Act, which would, as its title suggests, improve our EPA’s definition of PFAS chemicals so that it can address all PFAS chemicals. Yes, at some point our EPA was either too corrupt or too cowardly to define PFAS chemicals – also known as “forever chemicals,” largely because of the amount of time they stay in your system after you ingest them! – broadly enough. And though that’s already caused a lot of health care problems for a lot of good Americans, at the very least we can start attacking the health care problems these ubiquitous chemicals will cause in the future.
