Senator Dodd wants to amend the Constitution to give Congress the right to regulate political contributions. This,of course, is in reaction to the Supreme Court's ridiculous decision in the Citizen United case to grant corporations Freedom of Speech rights.
Although Senator Dodd's heart is in the right place, I'm not comfortable with this proposed measure. It gives Congress too much power. A simpler solution - an amendment that limits corporations' rights w/o granting more power to Congress.
