There's some exciting news for those of us who want to overturn the horrible Citizens United vs. FEC Supreme Court decision, which opened the floodgates for unlimited amounts of corporate money to flow into our political system.

The New York state Assembly will vote on K1016-2011, a resolution calling on the U.S. Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and ensure that corporate spending on politics is no longer considered a Constitutionally protected right.

If it passes, New York will be among the first states to officially call on Congress to amend the Constitution to undo Citizens United.

We deserve a government of, for and by the people — not one where our elected officials are bought and paid for by big corporations.

Sadly, we might need to work really hard to get unlimited corporate money out of politics and re-establish the common sense and democratic view that only people are people, not corporations.

But with 85% of the public opposed to the Citizens United decision, there is a potential for a broad coalition of Democrats, Republicans and Independents who all want to restore our democracy.
