Corporate personhood amendment up to 12 sponsors!

I have no idea why it takes this long to gather 12 congressional sponsors of an amendment that would restore a law that the Supreme Court needlessly gutted - especially after a new poll showed that 80% of Americans would support such an amendment.

On the other hand, how often does a proposed constitutional amendment get 12 sponsors as quickly as this one has?

The amendment to watch is the one introduced early this month by Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Maryland). The measure was languishing in committee, but now it's back on track!

Congress has a mandate to approve this amendment, and we have a right to expect the states to ratify it - because it would also restore state laws that the Supreme Court shredded with its talons.
