Since the 2008 victory of Citizens United, a political action group, corporations share the same right to free speech as we the people. With their right to pay for electioneering communications in federal elections, Big Money now wields immense power on who gets elected and what laws and regulations are approved or not.

Here’s how our candidates stand on overturning Citizens United to reclaim our democracy.

Hillary Clinton – Democratic Party

There’s no question that we need to make Washington work much better than it does today. And that means, in particular, getting unaccountable money out of politics… That’s why I’m so passionate about the issue and I will fight hard to end the stranglehold that the wealthy and special interests have on so much of our government.
~ Hillary Clinton on Campaign Finance Reform, June 2016
