Service has always been one of the core American values. President John F. Kennedy famously said in his 1961 inaugural address, “ask not what your country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country.” Several years later, President Ronald Reagan said, “The work of volunteer groups throughout our country represent the very heart and soul of America. They have helped make this the most compassionate, generous and humane society that ever existed on the face of this earth.”
As Citizens for Political Reform, it’s up to all of us to make our collective voice heard to influence our leaders in Washington and across the country to make our government work. Every week, BPC will ask Citizens for Political Reform questions to solicit ways to improve government. Responses to these questions will be used to help inform the Commission on Political Reform and policy makers about public opinion.
