Ravalli Republic: Citizens United: Tester shows leadership with amendment proposal

Letter to the Editor: Crystal Kingston, Dixon

U.S. Sen. Jon Tester is showing great leadership by introducing a much-needed amendment to the U.S. Constitution to reverse the Supreme Court’s disastrous “Citizens United” ruling. (Read the text of the amendment here).

There is broad bipartisan agreement that the ruling has been a disaster for our democratic process. Corporations are not people, my friends, and their growing power and control threaten our very well-being. Please support Tester’s efforts to bring this amendment forward, and see it through the Congress.
