Bill Maher ~ and another thing...

FEC vs Citizens United: A ridiculous decision that should never have been instituted.


@SenatorSanders (Bernie Sanders) tweets:

"I'm Ben, I'm a person.
I'm Jerry, I'm a person.
Ben & Jerry's ice cream?
Not a person."

Sen. Bernie Sanders has proposed a constitutional amendment that would overturn the Supreme Court decision in a case called Citizens United vs. FEC.  

The Saving American Democracy Amendment states that:
  • Corporations are not persons with constitutional rights equal to real people.

  • Corporations are subject to regulation by the people.

  • Corporations may not make campaign contributions or expenditures.

  • Congress and states have the power to regulate campaign finances.




Me, I rarely sign online petitions. Top of my head, I've signed the RRHoF petition and this one. There may be one or two others, but I don't remember them offhand.

However! This one is very, very important ~ and Bernie Sanders is very, very trustworthy.

No RRHoF! >:-(

After Xmas I'll catch my breath and work on a few other Eppy matters.....
