The president has called for a constitutional amendment to overturn the Citizens United decision. Commendable, but I don’t see our politicians going for it.
Opensecrets.org shows top all-time donors from from 1989 to 2014.
It is amazing how many of those donors contribute to both major parties.
Among these listed giving 60/40 or 50/50 are: National Association of Realtors, AT&T, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, the AMA, etc. Many others give 70/30 or 80/20 and so on.
Never miss a local story.
Fat chance getting an amendment like that when donors are hedging their bets!
