Signature needed: Senate will vote on Constitutional Amendment to overturn Citizens United

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Petition Statement

We urge you to support Sen. Tom Udall’s constitutional amendment. Money is not speech, and the Supreme Court’s decisions have perverted our democracy.

As Sen. Udall said: “elections have become more about the quantity of cash and less about the quality of ideas.” It is time to bring some balance.
There are currently 17,775 signatures. NEW goal - We need 20,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Supreme Court’s Citizens United and McCutcheon decisions opened the floodgates of unlimited campaign spending by the 1%, which threatens our democracy.

And the Court will keep ruling this way, as long as we subscribe to the absurd notion that money is “speech.”

However, Senator Tom Udall (D-New Mexico) has sponsored a constitutional amendment to give Congress the power to pass campaign contribution limits and spending limits. A vote is expected in the coming months.

Sign the petition to the U.S. Senate: Support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and McCutcheon.
