An idea worth spreading

The Los Angeles City Council approved a resolution last night [1] that ought to be a model for governmental bodies throughout the┬ácountry. It calls for an amendment to the United State Constitution ending so-called “corporate personhood” and making clear that money is not speech — thus, in effect, overturning the Supreme Court’s disastrous Citizens United ruling.

The resolution was supported by the national group, Move to Amend [2]. You can read the text of that group’s proposed constitutional amendment by clicking here [3].
