Why Get Money Out of Politics?

Our political leaders are too beholden to special interests and their wealthy donors to truly serve the needs of
the American people.

The dominance of money in politics not only corrupts government itself, but also blocks effective action on
virtually every major issue Americans care about from big bank bailouts to affordable health care to our personal
freedoms.

We believe the only force capable of challenging the corrupting influence of moneyed special interests is a
diverse, non-partisan, grassroots movement. New Mexicans for Money Out of Politics is helping to build a Democracy
Movement to meet this urgent need.

Help Make Government Work for ALL the People.

If we really want a government of, by and for the people, it is up to us to make it happen. Let’s join
together to make government work for ALL of us.

NM MOP was founded to fulfill the ideas in the book Breaking Big Money’s Grip on America: Working
Together To Revive Our Democracy
by Bruce Berlin. NM MOP has formed an affiliation with American
Promise (AP), a national organization promoting a 28th Amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United
case. We lobby our elected officials on this important issue, as well as on campaign finance disclosure, a state
ethics commission and other election reform legislation.

Congress’ Tax Reform Bill

As hundreds risked arrest today (12/5)  in D.C. to protest the new tax cut/reform bill, it is very clear that
this bill is the most significant example in recent history of the price we pay when our elections are bought and
sold by the highest bidder, i.e. Big Money.

The tax bill cuts $1.5 trillion in programs that we all rely upon like education, Medicare, Medicaid and Social
Security. It is moving forward in order to give tax breaks for the big donors – the ultra-wealthy and Big Business!
This is why New Mexicans for Money Out of Politics is helping to build a national, grassroots movement to break Big
Money’s grip on America!

This tax bill should put to rest once and for all any doubts about the real-world impact of the Supreme Court’s
evisceration of campaign finance law. This article by Daniel I. Weiner from the Brennan Center for Justice, New York University School of
Law explains why.
