It's been one year since the Supreme Court's disastrous Citizens United decision, which allowed corporations to spend unrestricted dollars -- and have unrestricted influence -- on our nation's political process.
We've seen the consequences. The 2010 mid-term election was the most expensive in U.S. history, and the 2012 election will likely shatter that record as more and more corporate money corrupts our democracy.
Elections in the U.S. should not go to the highest bidder. Tell everyone you know that you won't allow secret super PAC spending overpower our democratic process.
Political spending limits were put in place for a reason: to prevent those with the most money from exacting the most influence. From 1999-2010, without these restrictions, corporations spent $32 billion on campaign contributions and lobbying expenditures while unions spent $872 million.
