house Bill H. Joint Res. 20

Amending the U.S. Constitution: Congressional Regulation of the Raising and Spending of Money in Federal Elections (House)

Argument in favor

Big money's grip on elections is so tight that America is no longer a democracy. It takes a solution as big as a constitutional amendment to solve a problem this broad and deep.

Argument opposed

Restricts First Amendment right to free speech. Too narrowly focused on elections. Fails to address advocacy spending. Insulates establishment culture in Washington.
