Call for Congress to Overturn 'Citizens United' Through Amendment Picks Up Steam:
"Amid the tumult and reality-TV-style coverage of the Trump presidency, we have not heard a lot about corporate personhood and excessive and unaccountable campaign spending lately. Trump, however, has proved through his appointments, choice of advisers and deregulation-oriented actions that he is a believer that corporations often have more rights than people. Let us work to educate more states about the need to side with democracy and not big money. There should be as much concern about how the Koch brothers and their plutocratic buddies influence elections as there is about the question of Russia's involvement in the last presidential contest. Political contests should be decided on the basis of public policy, as well as the candidates' skills and integrity. They should not hinge on the interests of corporations and outside influencers."
