Progressive“Amend the Constitution”

That is the cover title for The Progressive Magazine’s April 2010 issue.  In the lead article, Matthew Rothschild, the magazine’s editor, writes:

“Make no mistake about it: The [Supreme] court’s ruling in Citizens United, if left to stand, will destroy whatever hope we may ever have had of democracy in this country.  It will entrench corporate power as never before.  And the promise of America will be dashed.”

Rothschild’s article, which cites our Free Speech For People Campaign, is worth reading.

It can be found here.


And, last Wednesday, John Nichols of The Nation Magazine posted a blog piece entitled: “Tell Congress to Get Serious About Corporate Campaign Abuse.”


The piece discusses the constitutional amendment that Congresswoman Donna Edwards and House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr., have introduced to overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC, an amendment which now has 23 additional co-sponsors in the US House of Representatives.

You can read the Nichols piece here.
