  •  So let me get this straight... (0+ / 0-)

    We don't have a majority in the House.
    We can't pass progressive legislation in the Senate.
    We don't have progressive leadership in the White House.

    So, tell me... how will we ever get anything progressive accomplished when there is no hope of amending the Constitution to overturn Citizens United?

    There are two political aisles: Center-Left and Center-Right. It's impossible to cross them both. Republicans know this and govern accordingly; Democrats don't.

    •  The states? (0+ / 0-)

      I genuinely believe state action could be done to amend the Constitution.

      Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.
