Keeping Our Promises to Our Service Members, Veterans, and Military Families

Less than 1% of the U.S. population currently serves in uniform. And while Americans rightly honor their service on November 11, too often the day-to-day sacrifices of military families go unseen and unremarked. Parades and salutes to the troops are important ways that Americans express their gratitude, but they’re only platitudes if they’re not backed up with meaningful action and policies that support our military both during and after service — not just on Veterans Day, but every day.

Breaking the Political Influence of Market-Dominant Companies

Just two years after leaving his role as George W. Bush’s Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy, Joel Kaplan was hired by Facebook to be the tech giant’s Vice President for U.S. Public Policy. Since Kaplan brought his government contacts to Facebook, the company has spent over $71 million lobbying the federal government, including against policies that protect consumer privacy and election integrity — nearly 100 times what it had spent before Kaplan joined — and Facebook is now waging a new, multi-million dollar effort amid antitrust scrutiny.
