All we wanted from Rep. Adam Schiff is to see all that evidence he had of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia, but instead, we got an attempt to overturn Citizens United that’s certain to go nowhere, but maybe it will get him some more time on cable news, which has become sort of a second job for him. Do Democrats have anything on their plates but screwing with the 2020 election?
Our democracy is not for sale. We must stop the flood of dark money from drowning out the voices of everyday citizens.
That's why I just introduced a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and restore power to the American people. pic.twitter.com/YNYzb35uSf

Seriously, all this has done is remind us that we’ve never heard anything about that shady campaign finance deal going on with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff.
But overturning Citizen's United would literally take power from the American people and put it in the hands of the Federal Government… https://t.co/2Mn8lLsrTY

Well, he’s a Democrat, so that’s his objective.
Dems are back to repealing the First Amendment again. If this passes, then for the first time in our nation's history, Congress (and also state legislatures) could "make laws" restricting the freedom of political speech. https://t.co/pzAZHsY9HT

He means “turn it over to people who only back my side”.
This man is a fascist. https://t.co/9QeBOxL8P4

Dems lost Citizens United. It's a shock they don't want to accept the results. https://t.co/DYehjE9bWx

Citizens United was about an independent documentary filmmaker being allowed to criticize Hillary Clinton.@TheDemocrats want to take away freedom of speech so people can't criticize politicians. https://t.co/B1jYry44jv

You got the hard part out of the way. Now all you have to do is:
1. Get 2/3 of the House to pass it.
2. Get 2/3 of the Senate to pass it.
3. Get 38 states to ratify it.
Good luck! https://t.co/mlLuzQckAQ

As if you needed another reason to oppose this, check out what liberals who are cheering it also want in order to curb free speech:
