The Supreme Court's horrendous rulings in the Citizens United and McCutcheon cases have stabbed democracy in the back. As I said on the night of the Citizens United decision, on MSNBC, "If we do nothing, you can kiss this country goodbye." Now it's time to act. We have filed eight bills to reverse this assault, our "Save Democracy" Platform. Don't let our laws be sold to the highest bidder. Sign our petition today so that, as Lincoln said, government of the People, by the People and for the People shall not perish from this Earth.
I support the "Save Our Democracy" Platform, as our last, best hope. Money is not speech. Corporations are not people. We cannot have a government that is bought and paid for by the millionaires and billionaires and huge multinational corporations. We need a government of the People, by the People, and for the People.
