Dear President Obama,

For the first time since the first half of the 20th century millionaires are the majority in Congress again. This comes only a few years after the Citizen's United decision. Excessive lobbying changes the rules of the game in congress and politics. Politicians goal is to get re-elected and they need funds to do so. Because there is no limit on the funds that can be raised politicians have to cater to the lobbyist for funds to stay in the race instead of what is in the best interest of the people. Please consider forming legislation that can re-instate the cap on lobbying in America.

Thank You,
