The call to remove corporate greed from our politics has taken a step towards making it happen.
The 99% movement isn't going to just fade away like TPTB would like. The message has been heard by too many people.
Rep. Deutch Introduces OCCUPIED Constitutional Amendment To Ban Corporate Money In Politics
In one of the greatest signs yet that the 99 Percenters are having an impact, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, today introduced an amendment that would ban corporate money in politics and end corporate personhood once and for all.
Deutch’s amendment, called the Outlawing Corporate Cash Undermining the Public Interest in our Elections and Democracy (OCCUPIED) Amendment, would overturn the Citizens United decision, re-establishing the right of Congress and the states to regulate campaign finance laws, and to effectively outlaw the ability of for-profit corporations to contribute to campaign spending.
Americans of all stripes agree that for far too long, corporations have occupied Washington and drowned out the voices of the people. I introduced the OCCUPIED Amendment because the days of corporate control of our democracy. It is time to return the nation’s capital and our democracy to the people.

In compliance with ATS rules on lengthy ex texts, please visit site and read about it yourself and decide.
Being distracted, apathy, being manipulated and not choosing to educate ourselves as to what TPTB are pulling over on us led us into this mess.
Maybe united we can peacefully undo some of the damage.
