Were moving forward,Sen.Al Franken is a U.S Senator that claims that he wants overturn citizen united,but that idiot is trying to start a petition drive? wtf is he a senator for? he's in high school ,why don't he just introduce the Bill? do you're job MAN,even crazy mad lady Bachman didn't start a petition to repeal the ACA!I hope that we can get a Democrat challenger to run against this idiot.Maine became the 13th state in the nation to call for a constitutional amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Courts ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Twenty-five House Republicans (in the state House) and five Senate Republicans joined Democrats to call upon each Member of the Maine Congressional Delegation to actively support and promote in Congress an amendment to the United States Constitution on campaign finance.
Maine joins West Virginia, Colorado, Montana, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, California, Rhode Island, Maryland, Vermont, New Mexico and Hawaii in calling for that Constitutional amendment. Which means momentum:
The swift action by both houses of the Maine legislature, coming less than a month after West Virginia urged Congress to act, confirms the momentum that is building for the movement, which has been backed by almost 500 communities nationwide. Though media coverage has been scant, it is rare in recent history for a grassroots movement to amend the constitution to have attracted so much official support at the municipal, county and state levels nationwide.
It's a grassroots movement with both momentum and bipartisan support. Outside of the U.S. Congress and the Supreme Court, Republicans hate corporate spending in campaigns [pdf] almost as much as Democrats (71 percent versus 73 percent, respectively) and want to see reform. A Constitutional amendment is not an easy thing to achieve, but the time is right for this one.

The Bengahzi Bomber and Her Boss are being scrutinized today, and all that you Victim Demokrats got is some obscure issue about who can give their hard earned money to whom.....As your King Barry spends 6 days a week Campaigning for Cash, and one day a week "Pahtying" at the Royal Residence!
God save us from what we have allowed the Government Indoctrinators to produce in our Schools!
Do your country, and your Feed Trough, a Favor. Do not vote!
