Adam Schiff: Our democracy is not for sale




Adam Schiff
@RepAdamSchiff

Our democracy is not for sale. We must stop the flood of dark money from drowning out the voices of everyday citizens. That's why I just introduced a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and restore power to the American people.

1. K & R...for visibility...

It won't fly with Repubs, of course, but we have to make the effort.

If only the M$M would publish the efforts and portray Repub stonewalling legislation in real time.

2. I thought it was up to the SCOTUS to overturn the ruling

If the House can start the ball rolling, by all means. Do it, patriots!

4. Awesome!...But

They really have to go after Buckley v Valeo. That is the ruling that allowed campaign spending limits, BUT ruled also that money basically equals constitutionally protected speech. Money is not speech. Money is access to the media which amplifies speech but it is not speech in and of itself. In my humble opinion, Buckley is what started the path to Citizens United.
