On Thursday, Bernie Sanders joined us for the Democracy is Not for Sale Movement Call to discuss the critical need to overturn Citizens United — this month marks 14 years since the disastrous Supreme Court ruling that unleashed a flood of Big Money in politics. 

“Corporations are not people and money is not speech,” Bernie said. “The forces against us in the fight to overturn Citizens United are, by definition, extremely wealthy and extremely powerful, but let me emphasize that they are the 1% and we are the 99%. 

“It’s time my colleagues in DC understand that our government and our economy must work for all of us, not just the billionaire class,” he said.

Our movement has been crucial to engaging the 99% in politics to elect progressives and mount pressure on politicians to represent us, not the 1%. Become a recurring monthly member of Our Revolution or give a one-time donation today to empower our collective voice.
