A silver lining to the Republican budget debate?

Mar 26, 2015

The Senate is voting tonight on the Republicans’ horrendous budget which repeals Obamacare, destroys Medicare, and would deal a massive blow to the economy.

Bernie Sanders is planning to add an amendment to the bill which would begin the process for a Constitutional Amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United.

“Are we comfortable with an American political system which is being dominated by a handful of billionaires? Are we a nation that prides ourselves on one-person, one-vote, or do we tell ordinary Americans you’ve got one vote but the Koch brothers can spend hundreds of millions of dollars?

Do we want a political system in which a handful of billionaires can buy members of the United States Congress?”


Will Bernie’s plan succeed? With the number of senators in the hands of dark money, it will be a steep hill to climb.

But, this is critical moment in the movement to overturn Citizens United. By supporting Senator Sanders now, when can show politicians, the media and the Koch brothers that the American people have had enough.
