“We have a clear agenda in this regard: Disclose, reform the system reducing the roll of money in campaigns, and amend the Constitution to rid it of this ability for special interests to use secret, unlimited, huge amounts of money flowing to campaigns,” Pelosi said at her Thursday press briefing.
“I think one of the presenters at a Democratic forum on amending the Constitution yesterday said that the Supreme Court had unleashed a predator that was oozing slime into the political system, and that, indeed, is not an exaggeration,”
“Our Founders had an idea. It was called democracy. It said elections are determined by the people, the voice and the vote of the people, not by the bankrolls of the privileged few. This Supreme Court decision flies in the face of our Founders’ vision and we want to reverse it.”
First off, Ms Pelosi, our Founders had an idea called the "Republic" for which your leadership in the House, during the 111th congress, failed MISERABLY!
Second, we still have an election determined by the people. People who might also be a part of a Corporation, but individually empower to cast a vote.
Regardless of how a Campaign is funded and the message that that funding promotes, a corporation has no power to vote as a whole and Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission didn't change that.
The audacity of the progressives in our nation to want to fundamentally change the 'Bill of Right' is quite certain another attack ON THE CONSTITUTION!
