Melissa Appears on Democracy Now! to Discuss Citizens United

Melissa made an appearance on Democracy Now! this morning to discuss the resolution she sponsored with the Progressive Caucus in the City Council yesterday that opposes the infamous Citizens United decision that gave corporations the same rights as people.  Under this decision, corporations can now donate unlimited funds to federal political campaigns.  Melissa and her colleagues in the Progressive Caucus are now joining the call for a Constitutional amendment to overturn this court decision.

Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think.  Should corporations have the same rights as people?

  1. Thank you Melissa for your commitment. I’ve never been able to have a conversation with a corporation :). They should not have the same rights as me!
