The Saving American Democracy Amendment video

Warning that "American democracy in endangered," Sen. Bernie Sanders on Thursday proposed a constitutional amendment to overturn a Supreme Court ruling that allowed unrestricted and secret campaign spending by corporations on U.S. elections. The first constitutional amendment ever proposed by Sanders during his two decades in Congress would reverse the narrow 5-to-4 ruling in Citizens United vs. the Federal Elections Commission.

I signed it wholeheartedly. I hope that this amendment passes.

This is important. Keep bumping it every time it goes down on the list. I wish that we could get this to be a sticky or something.
