Senate and House Leaders: Amend the U.S. Constitution to Undo the Damage of Citizens United v. FEC.

      People For the American Way

The Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. FEC has focused America's attention on the dangerous influence of corporate power in our democracy and the urgency of taking all necessary measures to undo that influence, including amending the Constitution. 

Generations of Americans have amended the Constitution over the years to ensure that "We the People" means all the people, not just the privileged few. The Citizens United case, which opened the floodgates to unlimited corporate spending to influence elections at all levels of government, has brought home the importance of amending the Constitution to ensure that "We the People" does not mean we the corporations. 

We believe that America works best when our government is of, by and for the people. Although we have differences in scope and tactics, all of us are united in the understanding that the Court's decision in Citizens United and related cases must be remedied by amending the Constitution in order to restore the democratic promise of America.

      The 2012 presidential election demonstrated clearly that superpacs were trying to buy the election. This time, they did not succeed, but it came close.
