And the chances of getting a Constitutional Amendment passed on this subject right now…Zero.
Does this issue really need an Amendment, or could the Citizens United ruling be defeated with a regular bill?

Some people would cry foul if they couldn’t exploit minority rule. CU and all of the voting snafus are undemocratic. Turtle has to go.
