Bernie Sanders offers Constitutional Amendment to ban Corporate Personhood

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.

  1. Just my personal crazy observation the solution is obvious. End government recognition of corporations. The business community has abused the system to the point they deserve to be stripped of the protections that incorporation provides.
