Florida Democrat introduces OCCUPIED amendment

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

OK, that's the type of politician that people want to vote for. The idea that corporations are people is so bizarre yet so few in Congress have bothered to do anything about it. More from Think Progress:

In one of the greatest signs yet that the 99 Percenters are having an impact, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, today introduced an amendment that would ban corporate money in politics and end corporate personhood once and for all.

Deutch’s amendment, called the Outlawing Corporate Cash Undermining the Public Interest in our Elections and Democracy (OCCUPIED) Amendment, would overturn the Citizens United decision, re-establishing the right of Congress and the states to regulate campaign finance laws, and to effectively outlaw the ability of for-profit corporations to contribute to campaign spending.
