White House petition: Introduce a bill to overturn Citizens United
Citizens United has allowed corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence the election process. This has spurred Super PAC's where money is shielded and there is no transparency where this money is coming from. In the 2012 election millions of dollars were spent by these entities and although the candidates they supported mostly lost, this issue will continue to influence elections in the future. Overturn Citizens United and the Super PAC entities that shield donors from disclosure.

3. 'Citizens United' was a Supreme Court decision, a bill will not be overturning it anymore than one
would overturn 'Roe v. Wade'.
