Apparently the only way to overturn this SCOTUS abomination is to do it state by state.

Progressive activists are celebrating another victory today after the Vermont Legislature became the third in the nation late Thursday to pass resolutions calling for a constitutional amendment that would overturn Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission, the controversial 2010 Supreme Court ruling that allowed corporations and other groups to spend unlimited amounts of money influencing elections and gave rise to the now-infamous Super PACs.
The resolution passed the Vermont House by a vote of 92-40 with support from five Republicans and despite a filibuster attempt by a Republican state representative. A similar resolution passed the state Senate last week by a wide margin of 26-3.
The Hawaii and New Mexico Legislatures have also passed similar resolutions.
"The Vermont legislature is the third state legislature to formally call for an amendment," said Aquene Freechild, an organizer for reform group Public Citizen's grassroots campaign to overturn Citizens United v. FEC. "I have no doubt it will be among the first to ratify."
State-by-state, that's the republican way, and it seems to work.
That's good news!
