Whether politicians want to admit it or not, there is a lot of dark money that goes into political campaigns. People like George Soros are what keep a lot of these Democrats afloat and able to run for Congress.

There’s no way that a politician who does so poorly should be able to continue raising seemingly endless funds to win their campaigns, and honestly, that’s what seems to be the deciding factor in many races. He who spends the most, wins.

Now, a group of House Democrats recently proposed a constitutional amendment that would overturn the 2010 Supreme Court ruling in the Citizens United v. FEC case, which lifted restrictions on campaign spending by corporations, nonprofit organizations and unions.

This proposed amendment seeks to “close legal loopholes” allowing these wealthy entities to influence elections with as much money as they wish, working to give power back to the people.

Rep. Adam Schiff, who has introduced this amendment each year since 2013, explained in a press release that this legislation aims to restore Americans’ faith in democracy and government.

He believes that by limiting corporate and dark money in elections, we can build a healthier democracy that works for everyone, not just those with deep pockets. Rep. Dean Phillips, Pramila Jayapal, and Jim McGovern joined Rep. Schiff in introducing the amendment on Thursday.

The proposed amendment would allow Congress and state governments to set reasonable limits on how much money could be spent on campaigns or political activity without any bias towards different views or perspectives.

It would also empower states to implement public campaign financing systems to reduce the impact of private wealth on election results and decision-making processes within government bodies.

Schiff expressed his excitement about the proposal via Twitter, hoping it will become law once and for all, “We need to return power to people…Unrestricted dark money has no place in our elections or democracy.”

His sentiment is shared by many—especially after record spending during last year’s midterm elections when outside donors poured more than $2 billion into federal candidates’ coffers according to Open Secrets’ data tracking system.

It remains unclear if this proposed amendment will become a reality, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m with the Dems on this one, because it can only help out us Republicans.

  • On the surface, this sounds exactly what we need but if Shifty Schiff is involved and wants it I have to wonder why. I wouldn’t trust that scumbag as far as I could throw him.

    • I’m paid $185 per hour to complete the task using an Apple laptop. I absolutely didn’t think it was conceivable, but my dependable buddy convinced me to give this straightforward an86 chance a go after she made $26,547 in just 4 weeks working on it.

  • That MIGHT help somewhat, but what we really need is to have donations from individual CITIZENS that live in the district they are living in. NO OUTSIDE MONEY!!

    That alone would shorten the campaign (less money to spend) and make it a TRUE REPRESENTATION of the PEOPLE! Not corporate/union “representation”!

  • “This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.”

    Guess what AFR, IT IS NOT WORKING!!!!

    33.3% (as of my previous post above) are SPAM!! You CAN do better as other websites have NO SPAM!

  • It will at least make it an equal plying field. So much of the money that the Dems were given was EVIL dirty money. Don’t forget people what kind of EVIL person Soros has been since he was 14. He and his father sold out the other Jewish people in their town
    so they could live when the Nazis took over.

  • Schitt would introduce NOTHING detrimental to the commie DIMMs. Assuming you could shut out “dark money,” DIMMs would still have the media, academia, and “nonprofits” owned by Soros to peddle their excrement!

    • That is exactly what I was thinking. If it weren’t for ‘dark’ money, some of these dems wouldn’t be able to finance a car, let alone a campaign.

  • I hope that unions are also included in these limits as the teacher’s Unions are the single most powerful lobby in the USA and you saw how badly they screwed our children’s education in the last several decades. Then they went thermonuclear during the Pandemic! Fortunately for use they were unmasked(see what I did there?) during remote learning, when parents got to see the unmitigated pile of Excreta they were passing off as Learning!

  • if this is true about high pays to run and win, then trump needs no money at all to win. even if he doesn’t get a cent, and not uses his own cash, he will deffenately win for real, this time. with no fraud from the dems.
