Take action now to oppose Citizens United

(Continued)

Turning to the Fourth Amendment, corporations have used “The right of the people to be secure … against unreasonable searches and seizures ...” to block essential, unannounced safety and environmental inspections.

To accomplish Move to Amend’s goal, we must lobby our U.S. representatives and senators on behalf of all those who worked tirelessly on their campaigns, while donating modestly, and who voted for a ballot question to overturn Citizens United.

Americans of all persuasions have said what they want, and the Constitution provides that “The Congress, whenever two-thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution … ,” so the Congress need not wait for two-thirds of the states to force it to act.

Congress should listen to the people and act now, before more harm is done.
