John Conyers & Donna Edwards push legislation to overturn Citizens United ruling
Advertisements [?]
Just stumbled across this, I figured you folks would want to know about it!

The sooner the Citizens United ruling goes away the better...Stephen Harper seems to follow step by step what the Conservatives in the U.S. do, once a policy is proven.

I do NOT want the same crap happening in my own country!

A pair of House Democrats introduced legislation Tuesday to overturn the Supreme Courts 2010 Citizens United ruling that freed corporations to spend unlimited money on elections.

Sponsored by Reps. John Conyers (Mich.), senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, and Donna Edwards (D-Md.), the proposal would amend the Constitution to empower Congress and the states to limit corporate spending on political activities.

Last year, the Supreme Court overturned decades of law and declared open season on our democracy, Conyers said in a news release. It is individual voters who should determine the future of this nation, not corporate money.
