Urge Congress to overturn the Citizens United decision
The Citizens United vs. FEC Supreme Court decision overturned over a century of precedent and opened the floodgates for unlimited amounts of corporate money to flow into our political system.
Shockingly, the court came to this decision based on the notion that a corporation is legally a "person" entitled to First Amendment rights, and by equating a corporation's right to spend unlimited amounts of money influencing an election with our right to free speech. This has led to enormous campaign expenditures that are corrupting our political system. We must overturn this decision with a constitutional amendment.
Please, stand with Daily Kos and CREDO by signing our petition urging your members of Congress to pass a constitutional amendment overturning the Citizens United decision and ending corporate personhood.
We cannot have a government that is bought and paid for by huge multinational corporations. We need a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Put the full power of your office behind a constitutional amendment to undo Citizens United and end corporate personhood.
