Prop 49: 28th Amendment Goes On California Ballot

Thanks to the hard work of a grassroots organization, Money Out Voters In, California voters will have their voices heard on whether Citizens United stands, or democracy is renewed with the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Here’s the language:

Shall the Congress of the United States propose, and the California Legislature ratify, an amendment or amendments to the United States Constitution to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (2010) 558 U.S. 310, and other applicable judicial precedents, to allow the full regulation or limitation of campaign contributions and spending, to ensure that all citizens, regardless of wealth, may express their views to one another, and to make clear that the rights protected by the United States Constitution are the rights of natural persons only?

More than 100 million Americans  now live in the sixteen states and five hundred cities and towns that have called for an end to the systemic corruption and erosion of democracy from unlimited political spending and the fabrication of “corporate rights.”
