Repeal Citizens United End Corporate Personhood

Congress must repeal Citizens United which threatens the one person one vote system of democracy by allowing anonymous corporate special interests to buy influence with big money. These groups can represent insurance companies, banks, polluters and even foreign interests. We need to keep moving forward, protect President Obama's change agenda which includes defending reforms already passed from being repealed and make progress on passing more reforms. Democrats and Republicans in Congress need to work together in the spirit of bipartisanship on issues where they can agree, and negotiate their differences to pass legislation that benefits the public. Stop siding with corporate special interest groups representing insurance lobbyists, bankers, Big Oil, Natural Gas & Coal companies that pollute our environment and oppose clean energy reforms and work toward policies that benefit the public interest.

Stop trying to take us backwards and stop corporate special interests from hijacking our elections and making America an oligarchy and a plutocracy for the rich. We need to repeal Citizens United now and end corporate personhood. Corporations are not people!

      This country is no longer working in the interest of, and for the good of its citizens. Only the rich and powerful have any say in our lives. I want this country back working for all of us.

      The only way to take back this country from corporate takeover is one person at a time speaking out in unison.

      Because we have to fight to keep our country from becoming the United Corporations of America.

      This ruling makes a mockery of one man / one vote and hijacks our democratic process and gives way too much power to wealthy corporations to influence laws and elections

      Every attempt should be made to keep elections fair, not matter what. To continue to allow mega-donations by corporations and people from outside the country just doesn't pass the smell test.
