WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) released the following statement today on the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in McCutcheon v. FEC. The Court in a 5-4 decision struck down aggregate limits on campaign donations:
"This deeply flawed Supreme Court decision continues down a path that equates money with speech and corporations with people.
"Make no mistake; decisions like this one and Citizens United erode the integrity of our political process and the public's faith in our leaders to do what's right for the American people.
"I will continue to fight to reform our campaign finance laws and to amend the Constitution to make clear that Congress can set sensible limits on campaign contributions."
