What is Tinylobby?
Traditional PACs raise money in order to give it to candidates' campaigns. We don't do that. Tinylobby is a Super PAC. It is its own campaign. In 2020, we expect to support young, diverse, energetic progressives in races all over the country. But we do not work for the candidates. We work for our policy priorities.
Aren't Super PACs a big part of the corruption in politics?
Yes. That's what Citizens United did. It allowed for the creation of Super PACs. There's a cap on how much money you can donate to a candidate, or to a regular PAC. But you can make unlimited donations to a Super PAC. So, if you're a billionaire, you can create a Super PAC, give it $100 million, set it up like your own private company, hire the people running it, and use it to elect and control politicians all over the country. It's at the point where Republican politicians meet with billionaires in order to literally audition for them.
How is Tinylobby different from other Super PACS?
They're funded by billionaires and corporations. We're not. We're funded entirely by people, and we have no ties to any particular candidate.
Why should I donate to Tinylobby instead of to a particular candidate?
You should do both. Throughout the country, there will be literally thousands of progressive candidates on the ballot in 2020. Nobody could possibly take them all into account and figure out which races need support the most. Unless it was your job. It's our job.
Why does any of this matter?
Because health care costs are unaffordable, and rising.
Because the opioid crisis is now the leading cause of death of Americans under 50.
Because the mass murder of Americans, by people who should never have a gun, has become normalized.
Because the Republican Party is directly attacking our democracy by engaging in widespread voter suppression.
Because far too many Americans are living in poverty while working full time.
Because Republican politicians are saddling our children with crushing debt in order to finance trillions of dollars worth of tax cuts for their billionaire owners.
Because the President openly courts support from white supremacists.
Because the Republican Party has endorsed credibly accused child molesters and attempted rapists.
Because a majority of Americans believe that the President is mentally unstable.
Because a majority of Americans believe that the President has been compromised by a hostile foreign government.
Because "once in a lifetime" storms hit us multiple times a year while Republican politicians continue to pretend climate change is a hoax.
Because millions of young Americans cannot afford to go to college, and millions more leave school with crushing debt that limits their lives for decades.
Because many public schools cannot afford to stock their classrooms with basic supplies, or keep their doors open five days a week.
Because many teachers are paid so little that they're forced to work two jobs.
Because we won't have a better country unless we build it.
Freedom Isn't Free.
Paid for by Tinylobby and not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
We accept no corporate money.
