Russell Simmons Visits Occupy Boston
Russell Simmons visits Occupy Boston and pushed a constitutional amendment that would publicly fund elections.
I just don't want the legal bribery, and I think all of us know that that is the core of our problem... or certainly if it's not the core of our problem it is a core of our solution.
Here's the gist of Simmons' proposed amendment:
Section 1. All elections for President and members of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate shall be publicly financed. No political contributions shall be permitted to any federal candidate, from any other source, including the candidate. No political expenditures shall be permitted in support of any federal candidate, or in opposition to any federal candidate, from any other source, including the candidate. Nothing in this Section shall be construed to abridge the freedom of the press.
