“If there was one decision I would overrule, it would be Citizens United…The notion that we have all the democracy that money can buy strays so far from what our democracy is supposed to be.” —Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Billionaires have had a fantastic pandemic. In fact, billionaire wealth has risen more during Covid than it has in the last 14 years. That should tell you all you need to know about the state of wealth inequality today.

As politicians on corporate bankrolls continue to block progress on all fronts, we're reminded that Citizens United is among the worst decisions in history. It must be reversed, or the Constitution must be amended to nullify it.

Since the pandemic began, a new billionaire has been created every 26 hours. Meanwhile, 160 million people have been pushed into poverty across the globe. Does that sound like a fair system to you?

Twelve years ago the Supreme Court decided corporations are people under the First Amendment. Today, sold-out politicians block progress on all fronts to appease their corporate donors. Citizens United is among the worst decisions in history. It corrupts our system every day.

How big money corrupts democracy: 1) Donors give huge sums to elect corporate politicians 2) Corporate politicians block hugely popular legislation 3) Donors make a huge profit 4) Repeat It all ties back to one thing: The flood of corporate money unleashed by Citizens United.

Every day, we witness unaccountable politicians bought by corporations refuse to advance overwhelmingly popular bills. Let's all take a moment today to think about how much political corruption can be tied directly back to Citizens United.
