Our Government is Broken. What Can We Do to Fix It?

"A republic, IF you can keep it" -Ben Franklin

We Can Break Partisan Gridlock by Achieving Three Goals

40% of Americans still don’t believe the results of the last Presidential election.  For democracy to work we need people to vote and to believe in the election outcome.

Through gerrymandering and other partisan practices, only 10% of Congressional elections are competitive.  That’s no way to make politicians compete for votes.

Legislative practices, outdated election laws and the growing importance of big money, make our government too much of an inside game.

Reform Elections Now (REN) is a non-partisan group of law and business school graduates looking for ways to eliminate the government paralysis which is threatening the health of our democracy and making the United States uncompetitive.
