To: The United States Senate
Signature needed: Senate will vote on Constitutional Amendment to overturn Citizens United
We urge you to support Sen. Tom Udall’s constitutional amendment. Money is not speech, and the Supreme Court’s decisions have perverted our democracy.
As Sen. Udall said: “elections have become more about the quantity of cash and less about the quality of ideas.” It is time to bring some balance.
Why is this important?
The Supreme Court’s Citizens United and McCutcheon decisions opened the floodgates of unlimited campaign spending by the 1%, which threatens our democracy.
And the Court will keep ruling this way, as long as we subscribe to the absurd notion that money is “speech.”
However, Senator Tom Udall (D-New Mexico) has sponsored a constitutional amendment to give Congress the power to pass campaign contribution limits and spending limits. A vote is expected in the coming months.
Sign the petition to the U.S. Senate: Support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and McCutcheon.
