The Supreme Court ruled that Corporations are people. Really? Do corporations breath, eat, breed and bleed? I didn’t think so. Since that ruling, all America has seen our politicians sell themselves and our country to the highest bidder with disastrous results.
It wasn’t just one, or even two, things that lead America to economic destruction. Wall Street played a big role, but so did corporations, as well as a few other sectors. By flooding money into our elections, and paying for lobbyists that influenced government policies, corporations and the wealthy gained huge benefits. The rich got richer with little or no regard to how it would affect the rest of America. Because of this, the rest of us watched our wages and benefits drop, and even worse, jobs disappear.
US Preventative Jim McGovern has proposed a constitutional amendment that would make it clear, once and for all, that corporations are not people. One has to really wonder if the Supreme Court judges really believed the American people would never catch on? This ruling is an example of how corrupt the whole system is. It’s time for us to set it right. Watch Representative McGovern’s discuss his proposed amendment.
