Democrats introduce constitutional amendment to overturn corporate campaign finance laws

Jack Birle  |  January 19, 2023  |  05:20 PM


A group of Democratic lawmakers in the House have introduced a constitutional amendment that would overturn campaign finance laws established in the 2010 Supreme Court ruling Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.

The "Democracy For All" amendment would allow Congress and states to "regulate and impose reasonable viewpoint-neutral limitations on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections."

The effort is spearheaded by Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Dean Phillips (D-MN), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), and Jim McGovern (D-MA). The bill also has more than 80 Democratic representatives co-signing the proposed amendment.  .  .

This Amendment will overwrite Amendment I, effectively weakening our Bill of Rights.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.
