Markey correct on Citizens United
While speaking at ITAM recently, Representative Ed Markey made the powerful argument that sometimes the U.S. Supreme Court gets a ruling tragically wrong and when it does, We the People need to correct that wrong through a constitutional amendment. His statement has nothing to do with a comparison between the travesty of slavery and the wholesale purchase of our democracy by the wealthy and everything to do with these decisions being completely wrong.
Markey is right to affirm that We the People must rise up and reverse this most destructive ruling of our lifetime with an amendment that removes corporate personhood from our Constitution.
