SUPER PAC's, the result of CITIZENS UNITED - Will Repubs join Dems to pass a Constitutional Amendment to end Corporate purchase of our politicians ?

    I would think that the Repubs by now would easily see from this nomination experience, that Citizens United just ends up selling our political process to the highest Corporate bidder.

    Anyone think that Repubs would Join Dems for a Constitutional amendment to ban the Corp donations, PAC's and Super PAC's ?

    Or would 'going into' the Constitution for an Amendment open up a can of worms that might make things even worse ? (in the back of my mind I fear the intransigence of the far right and what they might try to add on during the process)

    Selling our government to the highest bidder: this is one of our country's low points.
    I've read polls that show majorities of citizens of both parties are against the "Citizens United" decision. It would be interesting to see if something bi-partisan could happen to put an end to it.
