Nancy longs for the good old days when unions were allowed sole access to influence elections with hundreds of millions of dollars.
Via Daily Caller:
If Democrats were to take control of the House of Representatives after the November elections, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her party would amend the [U.S.] Constitution on the very first day to overturn the Supreme Courts Citizens United decision.
President Obama said he supports a constitutional amendment to reverse the ruling and keep undisclosed corporate contributions out of elections.
On the very first day we would have a jobs bill. We would have a jobs bill, much of it would contain what President Obama has in the American Jobs Act. It would be as simple as A-B-C. Make it in America. Build Americas infrastructure. See developed growth from the community. And that means education of our children, the police and fire safety of our neighborhoods, that sense of community and fairness, Pelosi said during her weekly press briefing Thursday on Capitol Hill.
We would pass a DISCLOSE Act. Im Nancy Pelosi, I approve this message but Mr. Big Bucks who put hundreds of millions of dollars into campaigns to get tax breaks for their industry or their heirs, they dont have to disclose their names. So DISCLOSE: Amend the Constitution to overturn Citizens United.
Unions exempt, of course.
Fat chance and go pound sand you fascist twit.
What an idiot. Is she gonna take 3/4 of the stAtes too?
Is she really that stupid???
San Fran Nan is crazier than a rabid bat.
Rhetorical question, I assume..
They must really think the country is full of sheep.
They may be right... up to a point.
She thinks it should be possible, and is a prudent course of action, to make sure that no opposition to her ideology can gain political power?
JFK said that if you make peaceful revolution impossible, you make violent revolution inevitable.
Go crawl back into your Vodka bottle Nan! Between Obama appeasing muzzies and San Fran Nan the First Amendment is under serious attack by the left.
Since the inception of this great nation, there have been over 22,000 proposed amendments to the constitution.
Only 27 have made it all the way....
Good luck with that, bondo face...
I am sure she will threaten and bully like she did with obamacare. The old rawhide faced witch needs jail time big time.
She doesn’t even know how it works, does she? Must not have read it in school.
I wish she’d melt already.
Nancy Pelosi said her party would amend the [U.S.] Constitution
Nan my old girl—you must read the Constitution to know what’s in it.
I think you may need a little more than “your party” to do that, just sayin’....
Technically true, but practically speaking even that is an under-exaggeration of how hard it is. The first 10 were a precondition of ratification by several States, and since most States that didn't require them already had very similar language anyway, it was pro forma they'd be approved.
The "real" number is 17.
You were way out in front of Pelosi right there.
