FREE SPEECH IN OBAMA’S AMERICA: Senate Democrats No. 1 Priority After the Recess? Gutting the First Amendment
This resolution, sponsored by Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., and 47 other senators (without a single Republican member), would amend the First Amendment to give Congress the power to limit fundraising and spending on political speech and political activity. The relevant language says that “Congress and the States may regulate and set reasonable limits on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections.”
Think of Lois Lerner as a first strike weapon that got confiscated. Now Harry Reid and the Democrats are taking a page from Obama — they’re going around the Supreme Court and the Citizens United ruling.
