Very interesting

To The Editor:

Constitutional Amendment and the Citizens United Supreme Court Decision:

As this issue hit the news today due to the planned protest at the State House, I just wanted to share an observation. Every single news article I have read or listened to states that the intent of Senator Sanders' amendment is to (basically) stop corporations from making political contributions. The original Supreme Court decision stated that corporations and unions could make contributions. I find it very interesting (but not surprising here in the Socialist Republic of Vermont) that no mention is ever made about union contribution, only the "greedy" capitalists.
