New York just became the 17th state to call for an amendment to overturn Citizens United and getting big money out of politics.
You heard that right.
A majority of the state legislators – Democrats and Republicans — signed a letter urging the U.S. Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s disastrous Citizens Unitedv. Federal Election Commission (FEC) and McCutcheon v. FEC decisions.
We have thousands of stampers in New York who have stamped hundreds of thousands of bills in order to reach millions of people. But it wasn’t our stamped bills alone — we’re part of a coalition of hundreds of local and national groups working together to get money out and restore our democracy.
We’re one state closer and there are more victories on the horizon, but we gotta keep stomping our feet and stamping our dollars. Together, we’re gonna bring those cows home.
