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.
