Balancing Access Inside Congress

There’s a smarter approach than 

letting partisanship control

​how power is divided in the halls of Congress.

We can’t stop at balancing districts' access to legislators.

Making this work means keeping the relative power

of districts inside Congress in balance.

​Nothing in the Constitution allows fundraising ability, corporate support or party to unbalance Congress’ legislative priorities, giving certain states, counties, cities and neighborhoods higher priority.

Neither money nor anything else should be allowed to unbalance

any self-governance function

(see Self-Governance and the Income Inequality Question).

But correcting this requires more than ending private campaign financing.

The party with majority support has more votes in Congress. This is advantage enough.


This amendment is the only solution proposed as of 2016 that addresses

internal abridgment of access to government.
