Dear Friends,

Look out! They're at it again.

With the fourth anniversary of the notorious Citizens United decision coming up next week, the Supreme Court looks ready to give us another reason to push hard for a constitutional amendment to rein in big money in politics.

In McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, the justices seem poised to allow megadonors like the Koch brothers to give as much as $3.6 million directly to candidates for the House and Senate.

Help Common Cause break big money's hold on our politics. Support our work for a constitutional amendment that will allow all voices to be heard.


The Roberts Court has put our elections up for sale. Its anything goes approach to campaign finance has helped SuperPACs shovel millions of dollars from anonymous donors into our elections. There's every reason to believe that it will use McCutcheon, which we expect to be decided any day now, to wipe out another of the sensible controls on political money imposed after the Watergate scandal.

A constitutional amendment is the only thing that can overrule the court, and Common Cause is leading the fight to secure one. We've gotten 16 states and hundreds of cities and towns on the record in support of an amendment reversing Citizens United.

Help us keep the heat on -- donate today.

Thanks for all you do,

Robert Reich
and the rest of the team at Common Cause

當心!他們又來了。

隨著即將到來下週臭名昭著的美國公民的決定四週年之際,最高法院看起來準備給我們一個理由努力推動一項憲法修正案,在大資金以控制政治。

在麥卡琴訴聯邦選舉委員會,法官似乎準備允許像科赫兄弟政捐大戶直接給候選人眾議院和參議院給盡可能多的360萬美元。

羅伯茨法院已經把我們的選舉出售。它的任何事情都會發生的方法來競選資金已經幫助SuperPACs鏟數百萬美元的匿名捐贈到我們的選舉。有充分的理由相信,它會使用麥卡琴,我們預計現在要決定的任何一天,全殲另一個水門事件後實行的政治上的錢合理控制。

憲法修正案是可以推翻法院的唯一的事,和常見的病因是領先的,以確保一個戰鬥。我們已經得到了16個州和數百個城市和城鎮的記錄,以支持一項修正案扭轉美國公民
