Fight corporate money in politics – Don’t Get Rolled
September 02, 2009
Fight corporate money in politics at http://www.DontGetRolled.org. The Supreme Court on September 9, 2009 hears a case, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which re-opens the question of whether there should be ANY limits on corporate money in our elections. The potential result? A century of modest limits on corporate campaign contributions could be rolled back and corporate money could flood our elections to an even greater extent than they do today. Later this fall, the Supreme Court is expected to hand down a decision. Public Citizen and activists across the nation are pledging to protest this outrage if the decision allows for more corporate money and influence in politics. Corporations are not citizens! We need citizen-funded not corporate-funded candidates! Sign our Pledge to Protest petition and show your support for fair elections.
