Sen. Warren on What She’ll Do to Improve U.S. Security: End Gerrymandering, Citizens United

‘Democracy is not for sale’

EXCERPT:

So, I have a plan for that. And here’s how it starts. Here’s how I think of this. First, if you let me do it, I'm telling you, I want to see a constitutional amendment to protect the right of every American citizen to vote and to get that vote counted. Everyone!
(Cheering and Applause)
Fight hard. I want a federal law to outlaw all political gerrymandering anywhere in this country.
(Cheering and Applause)
Yes! How about another federal law, one that overturns every racist voter suppression law in America?
(Cheering and Applause)
Okay, just one more. Just one more. Overturn Citizens United. Democracy is not for sale. Thank you."
