A Petition to Support the Saving American Democracy Amendment

There is a petition you can sign asking for a constitutional amendment to overturn the Citizens United ruling by the supreme court, that ruled that corporations are persons, and their campaign contributions can not be limited.

Sen. Bernie Sanders has proposed a constitutional amendment that would overturn the Supreme Court decision in a case called Citizens United vs. FEC.

The Saving American Democracy Amendment states that:

Corporations are not persons with constitutional rights equal to real people.
Corporations are subject to regulation by the people.
Corporations may not make campaign contributions or any election expenditures.
Congress and states have the power to regulate campaign finances.
