"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
David Cobb, Move To Amend / Democracy Unlimited joins Thom Hartmann. The movement to amend the Constitution to overturn the Supreme Court's insane Citizens United decision, and thus to declare that money is NOT speech and corporations are NOT people received a big boost on Thursday. The New Jersey State Assembly signed on to a resolution expressing "strong opposition" to Citizens United, and called on Congress to amend the Constitution to get rid of the ruling. New Jersey now becomes the ninth state to support amending the Constitution to prevent corporations, millionaires, and billionaires from buying our elections. Already, California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Hawaii, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and Vermont have adopted similar resolutions. And in just a few weeks - more states might join the list.
