‘We the People’ can Overturn ‘Citizens United’

There are only two ways a Supreme Court ruling can be overturned.  The court can do so in a new case, or the people can do so by ratifying a Constitutional amendment, as we have done at least six times before.

Given the corporate-friendly approach of the current Roberts court, we cannot wait for the Supreme Court to correct Citizens United.

–Jeff Clements and Rep. Jim McGovern, in the Boston Globe, January, 2012
