Letter: Citizens United ruling needs to be overturned

Citizens United ruling needs to be overturned

Corporations are not individuals, and therefore they do not deserve the rights that are granted to individual citizens in our country. Corporations are groups of individuals controlled by a small number of people with ideas and agendas that are not always shared by the rest of the group. Their power and influence on our government’s legislative, judicial and executive branches greatly outweighs that of most individual citizens, and thus are disproportionately represented in our democracy. Citizens United must be overturned in order to restore a more equal balance of representation for all U.S. citizens.
