Lessig: “American democracy is broken. We must demand 2020 candidates commit to a fix”

In The Guardian:

HR1, the reform package that she passed in the House, was extraordinary not just because of the incredible range of reform packed into that single bill… It was also extraordinary because it recognized that reform must happen first. “Fix democracy first” has become the slogan of many in this movement. And the essential question that we should be asking candidates now is not whether their campaign cash is pure, but whether their commitment to fixing democracy is real.
