In Face of Super-Rich, Corporate Influence on Elections, 'Nuns on the Bus' Rides Again

October 13, 2020 0 By JohnValbyNation

Like Robin Hood, the “Nuns on the Bus” show up when you need them.

First it was the social safety net-slashing House budget proposal in 2012 that brought out the sisters calling for justice in cities across the U.S. Then, in 2013, it was the need for comprehensive immigration reform.

Now, the bus-traveling sisters are back, this time fueled by the message, “We the People, We the Voters” in order to take a stand against the overpowering influence of big money on elections.

The U.S. citizenry is “fed up with a system in which the super-rich and giant corporations are effectively able to buy politicians and policy,” as Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, stated this month. That influence in thanks in part to two Supreme Court decisions—Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission—which dismantled campaign finance laws.
