Support a Constitutional Amendment to Undo Citizens United

    1. Sponsored by

      People For the American Way

We must take our democracy back from the corporations and restore Government By the People. 

The Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. FEC unleashed a tidal wave of corporate and special interest election spending that is drowning out the voice of the voter. 

Urge your U.S. senators and your U.S. representative to cosponsor legislation to amend the Constitution and stop the unlimited corporate spending that's undermining our democracy. Help undo the damage of Citizens United!

      Citizens United ranks with Plessy v. Ferguson as one of the worst Supreme Court decisions ever.

      I'm signing because the voices of the rich and powerful are drowning out the voices of the masses.

      This amendment is NECESSARY in order to restore our country to the true intention of our founding fathers of a government of the people and for the people. NOT for the corporations and their purchased puppet politicians. This decision WILL be corrected if we have to replace every current elected official and replace them with an honest, decent, individual with integrity.

      Yes the Corporate Court's outrageous ruling in Citizens United giving corporations political power needs reversing. Corporations should go back to only having economic power. Only natural born persons are people. Even if corporations have a free speech right to be heard does not mean they have a right to drown out the voices of ordinary Americans. They cannot use their free speech rights to silence individual free speech. Until Congress does this will petition the F.C.C. to require financial dosclosure from broadcasters of PA C and super PAC money funding political ads. If possible will also try to get the FEC to do so as well. We either need spending limits on political campaign funding by corporations and labor unions and/or full disclosure required. So they can't hide behind names like Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks, Liberty PAC which are all conservative anti-Obama groups or even Priorities USA run by former aides to President Obama supporting his re-election. We need to take our country back and restore our constitutional liberties and republic.
