The Senate Judiciary Committee is taking a closer look at the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision that made all these SuperPACs possible. In July – the Committee will hold hearing on the impact of Citizens United and the variety of constitutional amendments that have been introduced to overturn the radical ruling.

As Judiciary Chairman – Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy – said: “The devastating effects of the Court’s divisive decision in Citizens United are already being felt in states and communities across the country…This hearing will explore and evaluate a number of constitutional amendment proposals that have been introduced.”

Around the nation – more than 200 local governments have passed resolutions calling for an amendment overturning Citizens United – and more than 100 Members of Congress support the effort. Go to Move To Amend.org to keep the pressure on.

What does the "EXECUTIVE ORDER" have say about it?

That's seems to be what matters.

STATES RIGHTS/FEDERAL RIGHTS... CONSTITUTION/BILL OF RIGHTS... SUPREME COURT/CONGRESS... all of their work doesn't add up to a bucket of warm spit!

All of our sacred institutions immediately go by the wayside when an EXECUTIVE ORDER comes into play.

Go ahead... tell me where I am wrong?

... NOT WORTH A BUCKET OF WARM SPIT!

If companies cant donate as much as the want why should unions be able to?

What makes you think that anybody is discriminating between companies and Unions?

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
