To the editor:

If money = speech, then no money = no opportunity to speak.

Our political system is being hijacked by the wealthy few, and it is weakening our democracy and destroying ordinary people’s confidence that they have any say in how this country is run.

The recent Supreme Court rulings on corporate money in politics are an embarrassment to our democracy. We need and deserve a constitutional amendment that makes it clear that our government is not for sale to the highest bidder.
