I join the overwhelming majority of Americans to demand an amendment to the United States Constitution to end the domination of big money in politics and give voice to all Americans.
I will stand with all Americans, without regard to party or other differences, and urge all candidates and elected officials to do the same, in order to pass and ratify such a constitutional amendment as soon as possible.

The Young Turks Politics Interview with Jeff Clements

The Young Turks Politics Interview with Jeff Clements

September 27, 2017
Published By American Promise

Fantastic and insightful interview with American Promise’s Jeff Clements and The Young Turks Politics’ Eric Byler. The two discussed the need for cross-partisan support and collaboration for the 28th Amendment, the history of the disastrous Citizens United Supreme Court decision, and the importance of getting money out of politics.

In the interview Jeff says, “This is not to say, ‘Oh let’s meet in the middle and pretend we don’t have serious disagreements in this country’, because we do…It’s not pretending those don’t exist. It’s saying, ‘Come to American Promise to work on this issue, the 28th Amendment to the Constitution, to take back our country for all of us.'”

Jeff also was able to answer questions from viewers that provided insight and clarity into this complex issue. Watch the video below!
