DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF News) – A former Congressman from Texas is helping lead a bipartisan group of Republicans and Democrats working together in the House on what he calls common-sense political reforms.
Mark Frost said the Congressional Reformers Caucus consists of nearly 200 bipartisan former members of Congress, governors and cabinet secretaries.
“These are all people who believe in our system and want it to work better,” he said.
Frost said the goal of the “Issue One” organization is to take action to end the pay-to-play system in Washington.
“We’re not saying you have to do it a certain way but that you must make some changes that there will be an incentive for people to work on a bipartisan basis,” he said.
Frost said he is calling on candidates to restore accountability, transparency and integrity in Washington.
“You have to have a lot of people right now saying publicly ‘the system has to be changed’,” he said.
Frost said the “Fix Politics Now” Campaign is a way to show Americans they can offer concrete solutions to bridge divisions in the country and begin fixing the broken political system.
The Caucus believes that legislators need to be less concerned with how much money they’re raising and more concerned about whether their constituents see them as part of the solution.
