Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Thursday called for amending the U.S. Constitution to bar big money donors from having an outsize impact on the nation's elections, saying billionaire donors were mounting a "hostile takeover" of America.The amendment would reverse the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United and 2014 McCutcheon rulings, as well as part of its 1976 Buckley v. Valeo ruling, and restore certain congressional authority to regulate the raising and spending of money, including that of super PACs. Democrats are unlikely to garner the support of a Senate super majority, or two-thirds of senators, which is what they would need to pass such a measure. But repeated votes on the matter may make for suitable messaging ahead of the November midterm elections.
This article mainly centers of the big money donors that are having a huge impact in nation's elections. I don't believe its fair for all the people who don't have that kind of money to invest in all of their campaign. The super PAC is making a big impact in the elections because the big donors are giving so much money to make them get elected and those who don't have any super PAC support will have a huge disadvantage. I agree with Harry Reid because by eliminating the big donors, each candidate has a chance to get elected.
