Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is proposing reforms that she says would change the way Washington does business and restore the public's faith in democracy.
The State's senior senator says it would be easy to blame the President for this problem but it goes far beyond that.
She says the goal is to take power away from the wealthy, the powerful and the well-connected and put it back in the hands of the American people.
Warren's proposal includes tightening rules on lobbying, strengthening enforcement of anti-corruption, ethics and public integrity laws, increasing transparency in government and fixing federal open records laws.
