      They don't have any more free reign now than they had the year before the Citizens United decision.  All the decision did was remove some legal restrictions---and those legal restrictions themselves did not exist just a short time previously.  So the only thing the CU decision did was return things to exactly precisely the same condition they were in before.  It added nothing.

      The billionaires have ALWAYS had free reign to destroy people's lives--ever since the days of the Robber Barons. They dominated elections in the 100 years before CU, and they will continue to dominate elections for 100 years after CU is overturned.

      You are barking up the wrong tree.  CU is simply not the source of corporate political power, and repealing CU will not diminish the corporation's political power.
