In the News…

Legislation has been introduced by Missouri Senator Josh Hawley that would reverse the Supreme Court case Citizens United v. FEC. 

Senator Hawley stated, “My goal is to get corporate money out of our politics.” He said the unchecked corporate influence over politics and the nation’s elections is a deterrent to both American workers and democracy. Before the Faith and Freedom Coalition recently, he said, “Corporations are not people.”

To his colleagues in the Senate, he said, “Listen, there is no reason we should want to empower these mega-corporations, who are already in bed and colluding with the government, and give them control over our elections and over our speech.”
