U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Passes Proposed Constitutional Amendment to Increase Congressional Power Over Campaign Spending

On July 17, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee passed SJR 19, a proposed constitutional amendment. It says, “Section 1. To advance democratic self-government and political equality, and to protect the integrity of government and the electoral process, Congress and the States may require and set reasonable limits on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections. Section 2. Congress and the States shall have power to implement and enforce this article by appropriate legislation, and may distinguish between natural persons and corporations or other artificial entities created by law, including by prohibiting such entities from spending money to influence elections. Section 3. Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant Congress or the States the power to abridge the freedom of the press.”

The measure has 46 co-sponsors. Here is the list.

    Comments from Nader supporters? All I see on that list are Tweedle Dees. No Tweedle Dums.

    Hmmm. A declaration of WAR against the USA Const by the communist Donkeys in the gerrymander minority rule USA Senate — with its blowhard Senators from the many below average States.
    — due to the EVIL conspiracy between the small States and the more EVIL slave States in the top secret 1787 Federal Convention.
    i.e. the EVIL *Great Compromise* stuff – that got about 750,000 DEAD Americans in 1861-1865.

    The MONSTER incumbents would LOVE to have perhaps 1 cent limits on any spending – i.e. to have lifetime jobs passing more and more control freak laws.

    Abolish the Senate – a REAL reform.
    P.R. and nonpartisan App.V.

  3. The list of 46 co-sponsors is a rogue’s gallery of leftist enemies of liberty.
