I found a petition on the white house site that has over 20,000 signatures. Once the petition hits 25k, the President will issue a policy statement. Repeal of Citizen's is a major issue and must be addressed by the President. Create an account on we, the people on the white house site, use this link and sign the petition if you are truly committed to repealing citizen's.

I'm hoping that the President will talk to this in his State of the Union address.

According to Mitt Romney corporations are people, and I don't think he was talking about for contract law purposes.

Also - “I would like to get rid of the campaign finance laws that were put in place,” Romney said at a debate Monday night in Myrtle Beach, S.C. “ . . . Let people make contributions they want to make to campaigns, let campaigns then take responsibility for their own words and not have this strange situation we have.”
