Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL), Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA), Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD), and Congressman John Katko (R-NY) introduced a bipartisan constitutional amendment to get big money out of politics and restore democratic power to the American people.
The Democracy for All Amendment affirms the right of states and the federal government to pass laws that regulate spending in elections, reversing the concentration of political influence held by the wealthiest Americans and large corporations capable of spending millions of dollars in our elections.
If it applies to Google, Twitter, Facebook and all corporations that own social media and search engines…this is a good law? If it doesn’t, it’s nothing more than an illicit attempt to sway the vote in the liberal direction and should be canned?
There’s one thing I know in life, and it’s that if Democrats are for something then it’s a bad idea. Republicans would be foolish to believe Democrats want what’s best for America. They just want what’s best for themselves. We need Citizens United because it keeps Democrats out of power.
