Citizens United Amendment Campaign

Citizens United Amendment Campaign

A government “of, by and for the people” is the most basic promise of American democracy ─
but, in 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling eroded this promise by deciding it is unconstitutional to limit the amount of money that corporations and trade unions can spend to tell people to elect or defeat specific candidates. Corporations and trade unions should not be able to buy control of our democracy. Elected leaders should work together to take unlimited corporate money out of politics, require immediate disclosure of all contributions, and create new streams of clean, public money to fund campaigns so that our government represents voters, not corporate donors and special interests.
