The Bottom Line with Jessica English

My guest today is Mark Hayes of the highly regarded good-government organization, Public Citizen

Mark writes on the issue of money in politics:

"At Public Citizen, we’re pursuing a host of reforms to address the big problems that moneyed interests pose to our political system.  We’re pushing for greater disclosure of campaign contributions and outside expenditures. We’re also advocating for reforms in the corporate world that would require corporations to get approval from shareholders before spending money from corporate treasuries on election-related activities. 

"And, because of transformative effect the Court’s disastrous decision has had on our ability to effectively regulate campaign spending, we’re building a national campaign to call for a constitutional amendment that would reverse the effects of Citizens United and ensure that people, not corporations, have the ultimate say in our democracy."
