Debbie Wasserman Schultz: You can’t reform a broken system you benefit from

I’ve never run for office before, but it is my understanding that some candidates, like Debbie Wasserman Schultz, can walk into a room full of Wall Street executives and lobbyists and leave an hour later with hundreds of thousands of dollars. In fact, after sending a panicked fundraising message to her donors about our political revolution last week, that’s exactly what Wasserman Schultz is doing tomorrow with a fancy, $5,000 per attendee fundraising event in D.C.

Why? Because Debbie Wasserman Schultz is afraid of our political revolution, and she is rallying her corporate donors to — in her words — “show them how strong we are.”

Our political revolution calls for a fresh voice in Washington that will fight for working families, women, and seniors. The billionaire class calls for politicians like Debbie Wasserman Schultz who cater to their interests. That’s why I won’t accept their tainted money — and I won’t be forming my own Super PAC. It is my belief, that you cannot reform a broken system if you directly benefit from it. That’s why I plan on leading by example during this election.

Make a contribution of $10, or whatever you can afford, to help us reach 5,000 individual donations by Sunday. Let’s show the billionaire class what PEOPLE POWER is all about.

Showing the billionaire class that we have the strength and momentum to reach 5,000 individual contributions — more than most campaigns, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s, normally report in a given year — would serve as a powerful message about our political revolution.

And we’ve been able to do it in only a handful of weeks. Let’s finish January just as we began it — with a powerful show of momentum that will rock the political establishment and put us one step closer to defeating Debbie Wasserman Schultz later this year.

In solidarity,
