American voters have lost confidence in the ability of our political leaders to solve the most serious of problems: a staggering deficit, the need for jobs, a broken tax system and gun control. They feel frustrated, worried, angry and ashamed by the way our elected officials act. They blame a lack of respectful dialogue in the political system and politicians' unwillingness to engage across party lines for the Confidence Crisis in which we find ourselves.
The goal of Your Words Count is to restore confidence in American government by encouraging civil discourse.
If you're fed-up with our elected leaders refusing to talk with each other then it’s time to act. On this website there are a number of ways to engage, but we are open to your suggestions for other types of tools or information you'd like us to provide. Please send us your ideas to get our leaders talking.
