Press Release

(SPRINGFIELD, MA) Congressman Richard E. Neal released the following statement today in response to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) speech at the National Press Club where she unveiled sweeping anti-corruption legislation designed to change the culture in Washington, D.C. and reduce the influence of big money in politics.

“I welcome Senator Warren’s timely proposal to change the culture of Washington and restore the American people’s faith in our public institutions. In my opinion, the people who work inside the Beltway need to do a better job fighting for the interests of people who live outside the Beltway. There needs to be more transparency, accountability and openness in government. And we need to do a better job at reducing the influence of big money in politics. That is why I have consistently voted for comprehensive campaign finance reform legislation, support full disclosure requirements and believe the Citizens United decision of 2010 must be overturned. People need to know that their voices are being heard and that government is on their side. Senator Warren’s plan addresses these concerns and is a good step in the right direction,” said Congressman Richard E. Neal.
