Hey, we all want to see the ruling of Citizen's United reversed, but many of these merged ideas make it sound as though it is a law to be repealed. It is actually the opposite - it is the repealing of campaign reform laws, particularly contribution limits by the Supreme Court. The only way to "repeal" Citizens United is to pass a constitution amendment, requiring two-thirds of the very politicians beholden to large donors to enact, or to wait for a change in the make up of the Supreme Court itself... and these folks serve for life... and their replacements may support Citizen United. This would be great but it is not likely to happen soon. A more realistic solution is matching funds, vouchers or tax rebates for small donations, allowing politicians who forego large donations to competitively campaign against large donor politicians.

As long as the people with all of the money make all of the rules they'll continue to favor only themselves.

If you really want equal voices then put a cap on what politicians can spend on campaigns so that the best candidate wins and not the candidate who is the best fundraiser. Then enact term limits. Those two actions alone will put the people in the forefront. Anything else is only a political move and enacted to gain points by either the right or left bases
