Put People First in Our Democracy -- Not Corporations

On January 21, the Supreme Court voted by a 5-to-4 margin to overturn decades of precedent and allow corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money in political elections.

Senators Michael Bennet and Russ Feingold are deeply concerned about the implications this ruling could have for special interests to corrupt our political process.

"Going into this fight, I am proud to have Senator Michael Bennet as a partner -- he is as committed as I am to eliminating corporate influence in our elections, and restoring power to the people,” said Sen. Russ Feingold.

If we want to keep control of our political system, then we have to fight back -- starting right now.

"I am deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court's decision, which, I believe, only serves to tighten the grip of special interests on the political process. This ruling rolls back sensible restrictions on corporate influence that date back decades, and sets a dangerous precedent I cannot support.

Allowing corporate influence to flow unfettered into federal campaigns will only undermine the confidence the American people have in their government, and serve only to stack the deck further in favor of special interests at the expense of hardworking Americans. At a time when Washington is already too out of touch with the American people and too in tune with special interests, this decision sends exactly the wrong message."
