I support a Constitutional amendment to overturn the Citizens United decision.
Corporations are state-created entities that are immortal —
they live forever
—granting them rights due to citizens greatly diminishes the rights of ordinary citizens [flesh and blood persons].
It was wrong-headed. I think it was probably
the worst decision of the Supreme Court in my lifetime.”
