a result of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision,
American democracy is being undermined by the ability
of the Koch brothers and other billionaire families.
These wealthy contributors can literally buy politicians
and elections by spending hundreds of millions of
dollars in support of the candidates of their choice.
We need to overturn Citizens United and move toward
public funding of elections so that all candidates
can run for office without being beholden to the

is one person, one vote and a full discussion of
the issues that affect us. Oligarchy is billionaires
buying elections, voter suppression and a concentrated
corporate media determining what we see, hear and
elected president I will have a litmus test in terms
of my nominee to be a Supreme Court justice. And
the nominee will say, we are going to overturn this

and the Koch Brothers Party. With billions to spend
on campaigns. think tanks and 'educational' organizations,
the Koch brothers are the most powerful. We must
overturn Citizens United, move to public funding

they control: 'You own and control the economy,
you own Wall Street, you own the coal companies,
you own the oil companies. Now, for a very small
percentage of your wealth, we're going to give you
the opportunity to own the United States Government.'
This is the essence of what Citizens United is all
about - and that's why it must be overturned."
