Clinton to Unveil Campaign Finance Reform Plan (Link)

A corrupt political system cannot be ignored in our 2016 Presidential Race, and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is on the right track. Today she will reveal her campaign finance reform plan.

Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton will propose a slate of campaign finance reform policies on Tuesday as part of her effort to capture liberal votes in the 2016 Democratic primary.

The measures she will propose include rules requiring greater disclosure of political spending and a program that would provide matching funds for small donations to presidential and congressional candidates.

Clinton also plans to call for an overturning of the Supreme Court’s controversial 2010 Citizens United ruling, which allowed corporations and individuals to spend unlimited money for political advocacy through independent political action committees so long as they do not coordinate with candidates.

Overturning the ruling would require new Supreme Court justices as well as amending the Constitution, according to Clinton’s plans, and both are fraught with uncertainty.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
