Creating a Citizen Cabinet to tap the common sense of the people, break through gridlock and give "We the People" a greater voice in government.
Americans believe, as did the Founders, that the common sense of the people can help break through polarization and gridlock, find common ground and lead to government that better serves the common good. As public confidence in government has reached historic lows and gridlock continues to engulf Congress, VOP seeks to give “We the People” a greater voice in government decision-making.
VOP seeks to give the American people a greater voice by:
1) Working with Congress to establish a national Citizen Cabinet, a large standing panel comprised of a representative sample of the American public, to be consulted on current issues, using new online interactive tools; and
2) Making these same online resources available to ALL Americans, so they can get better informed and more effectively communicate their views to their representatives.
