2011 Constitutional Amendment to Reform Campaign Finance

2011 Constitutional Amendment to Reform Campaign Finance

The 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. FEC was a victory for special interests at the expense of the average American. It held that corporations deserve the same free speech protections as individual Americans, enabling them to spend freely from their corporate treasuries on campaign advertising.

This amendment to the U.S. Constitution would authorize Congress to regulate and limit the raising and spending of money for federal political campaigns and allow states to regulate campaign spending at their level.

Don't understand the hopelessness (or is it disdain?) reflected in some of the comments. I don't know if this is the best solution to the money in politics problem, but I've studied the matter as objectively as I can and there is really no other problem so at the root of so many other problems. A constitutional amendment regard electioneering speech is not impossible in my view. Congress itself
