👎🏻H.R 6433 AKA Go to Washington, Go to Work Act
I’d be opposed to the HOUSE Bill H.R. 6433 AKA - Go to Washington, Go to Work Act which will prohibit members of Congress and congressional candidates from soliciting campaign funds on any day in which the branch of Congress the candidate is running for is in session. Members and candidates would be prohibited from participating in events by attending, speaking, or being a featured guest. Under current law, federal candidates are prohibited from soliciting “soft” money but members of Congress are allowed to “attend, speak or be a featured guest at a fundraising event.”
Members of Congress do not, on average, spend an unreasonable amount of time fundraising. Given the amount of time members have out of session, it’s also plausible that most members are able to fit their fundraising activities in around votes and Congressional responsibilities.
