For all those out there who believed the problem with what’s little left of our democracy began with the 2010 Citizens United vs FEC Supreme Court decision and advocated for a U.S. Constitutional Amendment calling for overturning Citizens United alone, hopefully a few dots have been connected following yesterday’s McCutcheon vs FEC decision by the Supremes. Reversing Citizens United alone would have zero impact on reducing the negative impact of the McCutcheon decision and all it entails. Zero impact. Only a Constitutional Amendment declaring money is not speech and corporations are not people would have the breadth to overturn Citizen United AND McCutcheon AND abolish all never-intended corporate constitutional rights AND all the other challenges in the constitutional pipeline due to come before the Supreme Court that seek to end all remaining campaign contribution limits.
The Move to Amend amendment is the solution. https://www.facebook.com/MovetoAmendOhio
