Require Medical Examination for All Presidential Candidates

Target: Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House of Representatives

Goal: Ensure that the U.S. has a competent leader by passing the “Stable Genius Act.”

In order to increase citizens’ ability to make informed choices and choose a competent leader, candidates for the U.S. presidency would be required to undergo a medical exam and disclose the results to the public prior to an election if a new bill is passed into law. The bill is called the “Stable Genius Act,” which stands for “the Standardizing Testing and Accountability Before Large Elections Giving Electors Necessary Information for Unobstructed Selection” Act. Its unveiling follows President Trump’s referral to himself as “a very stable genius,” in response to questions that have been raised over his mental fitness for office.

The “Stable Genius Act” would require nominees to undergo an exam by the Secretary of the Navy. The candidate would then have to file a report with the Federal Election Commission certifying their compliance and containing the results of the exam. The bill was introduced by Pennsylvania Democratic Representative Brendan Boyle, who stated, “The president believes he is a ‘stable genius.’ I do not… While it is necessary to take the current president’s concerning behavior seriously and I support legislation to address these ongoing concerns, I believe we must also be proactive and do all we can to ensure a situation like this does not arise again.” Sign below to demand public access to the results of mandatory medical exams for all presidential candidates.


Dear Speaker Ryan,

As leader of our country and of the free world, it is vital that the president of the United States be mentally fit for the office he or she holds. You have the opportunity to ensure that this will always be the case, for the future of our country and our children, and you must take it.

The “Stable Genius Act” would require all presidential candidates to undergo a medical exam, and release the results to the public so that they can make better-informed decisions come Election Day. As Rep. Brendan Boyle, who introduced the bill, states, “Before voting for the highest office in the land, Americans have a right to know whether an individual has the physical and mental fitness to serve as president of the United States.” I urge you to do what is right for the well-being of our country, and to ensure that the “Stable Genius Act” is passed.
