June 19, 2018

The vast majority of Americans are fed up and want the FixIt America approach of ending overt gerrymandering and secret political payments that let politicians choose their voters rather than the other way around. The good news is the same computer programs that enabled partisans to draw ridiculous districts that leave voters hours from their “representatives” can just as easily create the districts that revitalize our democracy. To read more on Pudners take on the Supreme Courts decision on Gerrymandering click here. […]

Entrenched political operatives on both sides of the aisle use partisan gerrymandering to build political power and pick their voters. It is institutionalized […]

September 6, 2017

Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI 8th District) and Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA 17th District) are clear about one thing: they don’t agree on much. Aside from being first term congressmen and among the youngest members of the body (Gallagher is 33 and Khanna is 40), there are few similarities. Beyond party, Gallagher is a former Marine from dairy-country. Khanna taught economics in the Silicon Valley. Yet, they both are coming together to promote systematic reform. The two recently elected leaders wrote […]
