The Long Path to Reversing Citizens United


The Long Path to Reversing Citizens United

John Light

Getting unlimited, special-interest money out of politics, an issue long on the back burner for politicians in Washington, moved front and center with this election year, driven by an outpouring of voter frustration. Both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump ignited widespread support by pitching themselves as being outside a political system many voters see as being rigged by wealthy donors.


Good thing the abolitionists and suffragettes took a long shot at the Constitution, or we would still be legislating/suing our way out of slavery and women would still be seeking the vote.


Long shot doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be pursued, or given barely a mention in this otherwise encouraging article.
