There's two amendments being proposed right now, which are a good place to begin the discussion:
I had reservations with the Sanders amendment, because I don't think it would actually overturn Citizens United, but I've changed my mind because I think it at least starts the discussion (and provides a rallying point around this issue). We need to overturn decisions like Citizens United (really, an entire class of decisions going back to Buckley v. Valeo).
