Voter Reminder

SuperPACS are a new kind of political action committee created in July 2010 following the Supreme Court ruling in the “Citizens United” decision. Right wing groups and their corporate alliances are using this new form of giving unrestricted and anonymous millions to benefit the Republican candidates for 2012 elections.

SuperPACS report collecting $204,843,839 – and have already spent $139,552,815 in the 2012 elections. Millions and millions more will be spent before the November elections draw near. Outrageous! They want to turn our elections from “We the People” to “We the Corporations.” Corporations are not people. This is unconstitutional and grossly unfair to the American people.
