If you think special-interest influence warps our public policy, last week we saw an outrage that vindicates that belief entirely.

Sen. Dick Durbin offered a bill that would allow families at risk of losing their homes -- but with an ability to pay their mortgage if their monthly rates were lower and extended over more years -- to legally get that option.

The very banks that taxpayers kept alive with bailouts had the audacity to spend millions lobbying Congress to oppose this bill that would save homes. They also showered politicians with campaign contributions.

The bill was defeated. Senator Durbin declared that banks "frankly own the place." Will you continue to support politicians who support this corrupt system? Or will you demand that any politician you donate to support reform?

Please join Change Congress's political "donor strike" today.
