The Senate is listening. Time to speak up!

Today, Tuesday, July 24th, 2012, the U.S. Senate is holding its first-ever hearing on the need for a constitutional amendment to over-rule the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, which said corporations have the same constitutional rights as people -- so they can spend unlimited amounts of money to influence our elections.
The result is a flood of secret money, drowning out the voices of real people.  This is not democracy, and we’ve got to do something about it.  Amending the constitution is the only way to over-rule a Supreme Court decision.
Now is the moment to tell your Senators that you support amending the constitution to put America in the hands of We, the People.
Specifically, we support two amendments: H.J. Res. 88, which makes it clear that corporations do not have the same constitutional rights as people, and S.J. Res. 29, which reclaims our authority, through Congress and the states, to get the money out of politics.
We’ll provide a simple message for you on the next page.

This is not news, but a polical endorsement for the right. You are either a news site or a vehicle for political messages, but you can't be both.

This would actually be a political endorsement for the left IF you subscribe to pro-C.U. is strictly Republican and anti-C.U. is strictly Decmocrat.

I can't see how the Republicans haven't just blown their tops over this except that 'whats good for the goose is good for the gander' logic.

Remember Obama's election? All the concerns about foreign money in our elections? Then the Republicans turn around and make sure no one knows who is putting money in our politics.

Thanks to Citizens United we could have Iran and China donating to PACs supporting our politicians and never know.

This isn't democracy. Neither is the voter suppression the Republicans are doing in this state, but they have nothing left. Their base is shrinking and dying every day. They would do ANYTHING to preserve their power.

Just ask ol Scott Koch ... I mean Scott Walker up in Wisconsin. He's made no secret he serves his owners and not his constituents.

Just like another Governor I know....
