Take it Back

Wealthy special interests think they can decide who our next president will be, but together, we can take our government back. Today, the FEC ruled that the donations made by millions of Americans through ActBlue will not qualify for federal matching funds. Through the online clearing house, ActBlue, everyday Americans, like you and me, contributed nearly 4.5 million dollars to John Edwards-usually $10, $20 or $50 at a time. Now, big government Washington insiders are stepping on grassroots donors by refusing to qualify those contributions for federal match. There is no question that these contributions should be matched, but the FEC has said "no" to millions of Americans. But, you can say "yes."

Together, we can stand up to the special interests that control our government. Together, we can take it cack. Click here to accept the challenge.

There are just 20 days left until the Iowa caucuses, and momentum is shifting to John Edwards. His positive message of change is resonating with people in the critical early states of Iowa and New Hampshire. You can help deliver that positive message by clicking here to accept the challenge. As Joe Trippi said, "let's send a clear message to the FEC we're a new generation of grassroots activists -- and our commitment to the politics of change will not be denied."

I'm guessing that the FEC objects to the fact that people are also encouraged to leave a "tip" for ActBlue. Personally I can't see any material difference between that and a candidate paying a salary to a fundraiser. There really is no free fund-raising.
