      Petition to Support the Saving American Democracy Amendment


      Sen. Bernie Sanders has proposed a constitutional amendment that would
      overturn the Supreme Court decision in a case called Citizens United vs.
      FEC.

      The <http://sanders.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Saving-American-Democracy.pdf>
      Saving American Democracy Amendment states that:

      * Corporations are not persons with constitutional rights equal to
      real people.
      * Corporations are subject to regulation by the people.
      * Corporations may not make campaign contributions or any election
      expenditures.
      * Congress and states have the power to regulate campaign finances.

      244,308 SIGNATURES SO FAR

      Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont: www.sanders.senate.gov

      Bernie Sanders was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006 after serving 16 years
      in the House of Representatives. He is the longest serving independent
      member of Congress in American history. Born in 1941 in Brooklyn, Bernie was
      the younger of two sons in a modest-income family. After graduation from the
      University of Chicago in 1964, he moved to Vermont. Early in his career,
      Sanders was director of the American People's Historical Society. Elected
      Mayor of Burlington by 10 votes in 1981, he served four terms. Before his
      1990 election as Vermont's at-large member in Congress, Sanders lectured at
      the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and at Hamilton College
      in upstate New York.

      The Almanac of American Politics has called Sanders a "practical" and
      "successful legislator." He has focused on the shrinking middle class and
      widening income gap in America that is greater than at any time since the
      Great Depression. Other priorities include reversing global warming,
      universal health care, fair trade policies, supporting veterans and
      preserving family farms. He serves on five Senate committees: Budget;
      Veterans; Energy; Environment; and Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.
