Democrats tried to repeal First Amendment

A Democratic election year push to amend the Constitution and roll back campaign-spending free speech rights ran out of steam Thursday and fell victim to a Senate filibuster.
Holding the vote, even in defeat, was a major political goal for Democrats during the two-week session of Congress. They hope the fight will help them rally their base ahead of November’s elections, arguing that changing the Constitution is needed to prevent wealthy conservatives from improperly influencing elections.
The amendment Democratic leaders proposed would have given Congress and state legislatures the ability to set “reasonable” limits on how much candidates could raise and spend during their campaigns and to enact outright bans on interest groups that wish to use their money to influence elections.
The amendment would overturn the First Amendment’s protection of free speech as interpreted by the Supreme Court.
“This, make no mistake, is an attack on the First Amendment’s most important protection,” said Sen. Mike Lee, Utah Republican.
