High court’s bad rulings call for amendment

While slavery was and is an abomination in a class by itself, Representative Edward Markey got it right when he pointed out that, at times in our history, the Supreme Court makes a very bad decision and we the people need to mobilize to right the wrong by amending the Constitution (“Markey holds firm on his analogy to slavery ruling,” Feb. 21).

I applaud both Markey’s and Representative Stephen Lynch’s support for overturning the Citizens United decision, and I urge them to cosponsor the “We the People” amendment proposed by Move to Amend, which addresses the series of Supreme Court decisions that together have bestowed the constitutional rights of citizens on large corporations and have allowed our democracy to be tainted by inappropriate campaign spending.
