Judith Brough started this petition to U.S. House of Representatives and

Our elections are out of control!  Politicians make decisions based on their continued electability, not on what is best for our country.  They spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on ads attacking their opponents rather than explaining their own  qualifications. Those who are able to raise the most money have an edge to win, regardless of who is the better candidate. Lobbyists and large donors can therefore buy a  candidate’s loyalty.

Therefore we propose the following:

1. Ban negative political attack ads;

2. Institute congressional term limits;

3. Legislate campaign reform limiting contributions, including those from PACs, and capping campaign expenditures at the same level for all candidates.
