99Elect Candidate Questionnaire
 
We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few,but we cannot have both.” 
Justice Louis D. Brandeis
 
 As the gulf between the rich and the rest of us grows, our country is facing the disappearance of the middle class and the loss of the American Dream. This is poisoning our society, threateningour economy, and destroying our democracy.
 
Voters are sick of an economy that no longer works for the 99%, and an election system andgovernment rigged by and for the 1%.
 
We want political leaders who will represent ALL Americans, and will fight for economic fairnessand democratic government.
 
The organizations sponsoring this questionnaire are asking all candidates–federal, state, andlocal–to tell us where they stand on these critical issues.
 
Please check YES or NO to the following questions. You may append comments if you wish.Your responses to these 99Elect questions will be made public.
 
Hold Wall Street accountable
 
 YES [ ] NO [ ]
Do you support a full investigation into the Wall Street banks' role in crashing our economy –and if warranted, criminal prosecutions of bankers who broke the law –as well as  compensation and principal reduction for homeowners who were harmed by the banks' fraudulentand illegal practices?
 
 YES [ ] NO [ ]
Do you support major changes to the banking system that would reduce the risk of future financial crises–including breaking up the biggest banks and restoring the wall betweencommercial and investment banking (along the lines of Glass-Steagall) to protect families’government-guaranteed deposits from being used for risky Wall Street speculation?
 
Good Jobs and Shared Prosperity
 
 YES [ ] NO [ ]
Do you support a major public investment in jobs –such as repairing crumblingschools and highways, wiring the entire country with high-speed Internet, weatherizing millions of buildings to save energy, and ensuring that states have the resources needed to keep teachers,police, and firefighters working –to create at least five million new jobs?
