Interesting Take; Futile Advice

ANY legislative angle on redressing the damage unleashed by CU v FEC is pretty much doomed to failure by the fact that the people who will be called upon to vote to approve any such legislation are either 1) already in the pockets of those whose interests would be threatened by such legislation or 2) intimidated by those deep pockets, and the threat of a well-financed, primary opponent.

And that is before you add in just how long the process of Amendment takes. Over 200 YEARS for the last one. And don't ask about the ERA, which would be milque-toast compared to any effort to overturn or reverse CU v. Fec...

And, remember, too there has to come a vote, eventually somewhere; now remember California's plebiscite on Prop. 8?
