We need to get big money out of politics. If you don’t know about the Citizens United case and why it should be overturned through a constitutional amendment, it’s time to become educated. The danger of giving so few people so much power can no longer be ignored. How few, you may ask? Hear the shocking figure in this speech by Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Our system is teetering, poisoned by corporate lobbyists armed with checkbooks from multimillionaires. We can either let it topple, or we can save it by acting.
Access is power, and big money buys big access. Many members of the current Congress have been bought and paid for. It’s small wonder THEY won’t be voting for reform. So I say let’s get them out, before it’s too late.
