My new bill would end business-as-usual in Washington and rip corruption out by the roots. Here's what I want you to know about the Anti-Corruption Act.
In Washington, the government-to-lobbying revolving door spins so fast that it could make you dizzy. The Anti-Corruption Act puts a padlock on that door, and reins in the lobbyists.
Let’s ban federal elected & top appointed officials from becoming lobbyists after they leave office. Not for one year. Not for two years. For the rest of their lives. It’s all part of our new bill to #EndCorruptionNow. Sign the petition: elizabethwarren.com/endcorruptionn…
You shouldn’t be able to serve as President (or any federally elected office) without releasing your tax returns – looking at you, @realdonaldtrump. My Anti-Corruption Act will fix this.
Unless we require Presidential candidates to release their tax returns, we won’t know if the President is profiting from policy decisions – or if they’re vulnerable to financial blackmail from a hostile foreign power.
And government officials shouldn’t be able to use their public service to pad their private fortunes. Our new Anti-Corruption Act will make government work for the people. #EndCorruptionNow elizabethwarren.com/endcorruptionn…
In my new bill, we're fixing the Swiss cheese definition of "lobbyist" — and requiring everyone who gets paid to influence Washington to register. #EndCorruptionNow
It's time to bring lobbying out into the sunlight — disclose all the meetings and all the documents changing hands. If you agree, sign our petition and demand Congress pass the Anti-Corruption Act. elizabethwarren.com/endcorruptionn…

10 years ago this week, Bear Stearns was the 1st financial giant to collapse. The @NewYorkFed rescued Bear Stearns by negotiating its sale to @JPMorgan – but it was too late to stop the worst crash since the Great Depression. #10YearsAfter
Some people in Washington seem to have forgotten the 2008 financial crisis, but the millions of people who lost their jobs, homes, and life savings haven’t. #10YearsAfter
Right now, the @NewYorkFed President is being replaced. It's one of the most important economic jobs in America that @realDonaldTrump doesn’t control. We need someone in the job who will work for the American people, not for Wall Street. #10YearsAfter
