PUT CITIZENS UNITED IN THE DUMPSTER OF BAD IDEAS

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

We, the undersigned, have had it. Corporations are not people. Elections should not be auctions, and we refuse to let our democracy be put up for sale.

We are standing together to call for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.
There are currently 247,844 signatures. NEW goal - We need 250,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Citizens United was a disaster. It opened the floodgates for corporations to write big checks to fund right-wing special interest attacks, helping them pour $719 million into the 2012 elections.

The question is, what are we going to do about it? How are we going to stuff this "corporations are people, elections are auctions, democracy is for sale" mess into the Dumpster of Bad Ideas?

Here's how: A constitutional amendment that puts power back in the hands of the people. The actual, human people.

Sign the petition to join me in calling for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.

- Al Franken
