Overturning the Supreme Court’s Citizens United Decision


Sen. Bernie Sanders on the New Constitutional
Amendment Aimed at Overturning the Supreme Court’s Citizens United

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders discusses the president’s recent
climb in the polls and the movement to overturn the landmark Supreme
Court decision known as Citizens United. “Whether you’re talking
to a Republican or a progressive, people are saying that that Supreme
Court decision, Keith, is basically insane. Nobody that I know thinks
that Exxon Mobil is a person,” Sanders says.
