Ok, I see why these other proposed solutions won’t actually get the job done. But what sets the Neighborhood Legislature apart?

Ok, I see why these other proposed solutions won’t actually get the job done. But what sets the Neighborhood Legislature apart?

A:

Contribution limits, public financing, disclosure laws… all of these methods are just trying to cage the beast. But money is a powerful beast, and it always finds a way to break free. The Neighborhood Legislature ditches the cages and puts the beast to sleep. In other words, it doesn’t just try to control and regulate the money in politics – it actually makes the money unnecessary, which takes away its power altogether. 

 

Another way to think about it: all other proposed solutions simply try to treat the symptoms of the current system. The Neighborhood Legislature cures the disease.

 

Plus, the Neighborhood Legislature is really much more than just a campaign finance reform. It’s a systemic overhaul of the current CA state legislature that makes the government more responsive and accountable to the citizens, while also bringing about political equality and all the other benefits campaign finance reforms strive for. 

 

The Neighborhood Legislature is a comprehensive solution to the biggest challenges facing our republic today: the influence of money in politics, bad and unreliable representation, an entrenched governing class. Even though it looks new, it will actually make our government operate closer to the way that our Founding Fathers intended it to, because it takes into account the modern challenges that our Founders could never have foreseen.
