Film Highlights Reasons to Overturn Citizens United

“The Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United opened the floodgates for unlimited, unregulated campaign spending by corporations and wealthy individuals. Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Ted Deutch proposed a constitutional amendment to undo the disastrous decision. They spoke on Sept. 17 with People for the American Way President Michael Keegan, Public Citizen President Rob Weissman, The Nation’s John Nichols and documentary filmmaker Tia Lessin. The forum on how the Citizens United ruling has changed the American political landscape concluded with a presentation of “Citizen Koch” by the Academy Award-nominated filmmakers Carl Deal and Tia Lessin.”
