Black Star News has an op-ed by David Brodwin, co-founder of the American Sustainable Business Council, who decries the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision and urges passage of the Fair Elections Now Act (S. 752, H.R. 6116/1826).
"Many important initiatives such as reforms that support Main Street over Wall Street, health care and insurance reforms, product safety standards, better public education, and renewable energy advances will all be in jeopardy if we do not improve the election finance system. So what's the solution?
Congress has introduced the Fair Elections Now Act to neutralize the corrupting influence of special interest donations and make it possible for legislators to focus on the people's business rather than on fundraising."
