“I am disappointed to learn of the Supreme Court’s decision to summarily reverse the decision of the Montana Supreme Court and to reaffirm its ill-considered decision in Citizens United. The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision in January 2010 opened the floodgates to massive corporate spending in elections. We’ve all seen the harm that has already resulted from this decision – millions of dollars of corporate money and the rise of “Super PACs” that have upended the campaign finance system across the country. Because of this, in January 2011, the New York City Council unanimously voted to pass a resolution supporting members of Congress seeking to amend the Constitution in order to reverse Citizens United. Today’s decision by the Court not to revisit Citizens United lends further support for the need for a constitutional amendment to reverse this irresponsible decision so that the voices of everyday citizens are not drowned out by corporations.”
