State lawmakers and activists rallied outside the Massachusetts Statehouse on Tuesday calling for an amendment to the Constitution to overturn Citizens United. Inside the Statehouse – the “People’s Rights Resolution” was introduced by two Democratic lawmakers to do just that.

As one sponsor of the bill – State Senator Jamie Eldridge said, “In two short years, the Citizens United decision has upended our election system, with serious consequences for the health of our democracy.” If the resolution is approved – Massachusetts will joins states like New Mexico – California – New York – Vermont – Washington – Montana – Colorado – and Maryland – where local or state governments have joined the fight against the corporate takeover of our government.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.
