Demos Releases “Top 10 Ways Citizens United Endangers Democracy”
NEW YORK— Two years ago the Supreme Court got it supremely wrong when it held that corporations had the same rights as people to spend money in elections. Demos, a non partisan policy organization, has created a top ten list outlining the ways in which the Citizens United decision has made a bad situation much worse. Campaign finance laws protect our democracy from corruption and preserve the integrity of our elections. These rules governing the use of money in politics were in a sorry state before but Citizens United made a bad situation worse.
Demos is working to reduce both political and economic inequality, deploying original research, advocacy, litigation, and strategic communications to create the America the people deserve.
