Jul 27, 2012 — Tuesday, July 24th, 2012, the U.S. Senate held its first-ever hearing on the need for a constitutional amendment to over-rule the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, which said corporations have the same constitutional rights as people -- so they can spend unlimited amounts of money to influence our elections. The result is a flood of secret money, drowning out the voices of real people. This is not democracy, and we’ve got to do something about it. Amending the constitution is the only way to over-rule a Supreme Court decision. Now is the moment to tell your Senators that you support amending the constitution to put America in the hands of We the People.

Specifically, we support 2 amendments: H.J. Res. 88, which makes it clear that corporations do not have the same constitutional rights as people; ( )

And S.J. Res. 29, which reclaims our authority, through Congress and the states, to get the money out of politics. ( )
