Marianne Williamson on Government Reform

Author & Democratic Presidential Challenger

 


For constitutional amendment for public funding of campaigns

Q: What about gun safety?

Williamson: The issue of gun safety is that the NRA has us in a chokehold, but so do the pharmaceutical companies, so do the health insurance companies, so do the fossil fuel companies, and so do the defense contractors, and none of this will change until we either pass a constitutional amendment or pass legislation that establishes public funding for federal campaigns. It is time for us to start over with people who have not taken donations from any of those corporations.

DC should have representation in Congress

In terms of D.C., of course, you should have representation. I think when the founders said that D.C. should not have representation, they simply did not foresee a time when the kind of population in D.C. would exist as it does now. Absolutely D.C. should have representation.

Must address election security & Russian interference

Contrary to the way this president behaves, I would actually listen to the U.S. intelligence agencies. The U.S. intelligence agencies have an uncommon uniformity on this issue. They're very clear that there has been Russian interference. I will make it clear to the American people, number one, that I agree with our intelligence agencies that this is happening and, number two, that we're on it. In terms of the voting machines, we must have paper ballots. We absolutely must have paper ballots.

Establish public financing for federal campaigns

IF I'M ELECTED, MY ADMINISTRATION WILL SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING: A Williamson administration would work assiduously to address the above-mentioned external issues, and I would help the American people connect the dots, understand what has happened, and work in their own communities to save our democracy.
