This week, I introduced a Constitutional Amendment to repeal the recent Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC and to restore the Founding Fathers’ intent to grant rights to people, not corporations.
I did this for a simple reason: Corporations are not people. They do not breathe. They do not have children. They do not die in war. They are artificial entities which we the people create and, as such, we govern them, not the other way around.
We must put a stop to the overreaching 'corporate rights' movement that threatens the basic principle of "We, the people."
I believe in "We, the People," not in "We, the corporations," or "We, the special interests."
I hope you'll sign on to support our amendment today, and tell the world that it's time for a 28th Amendment that lifts up the promise of American self-government: of, for, and by the people.
