"I have always stood to end corporate constitutional rights and cease all the big money in politics. Corporations are considered artificial persons, and can live beyond the natural limits of age compared to humans, and because of those years, their financial investments and stocks will increase and can be passed down as part of their estates. Corporations use their resources to exploit, abuse and hurt many. This is why I will use my office to support the resolution to end corporate constitutional rights and big money in politics. I will work with legislators to make sure they stand with us on ending this at the House and Senate."

RESPONSE: Yes

How will you use your public office to end corporate constitutional rights and big money in politics?

"Corporations aren't people and they shouldn't get to write our laws. Our City Council should uphold strong tax laws for corporations operating in St. Paul to make sure they pay their fair share, reject corporate PAC money in local elections, work with organized labor and working people on people-first policies, continue championing our public parks, libraries and schools, and level the playing field in local elections with innovations like ranked choice voting. I can and will also keep using my platform to speak out about unchecked corporate power in federal and state elections and pushing back on decisions like Citizens United. As a City Councilmember, I've worked to champion small local businesses and working people by building power with organized labor to pass a landmark $15 minimum wage raise for the city of St. Paul. I've also worked to actively organize against displacement and for equitable development in our Midway neighborhood with the arrival of Allianz Field, through voting for a $10M Affordable Housing Trust Fund, leading the Council effort on tenant protections and organizing a neighborhood community benefits fund. It will take leaders at every level of office to root out corporate influence in our democratic processes, and I'm proud to be the only candidate in my race with a record of work on this issue alongside a coalition spanning St. Paul organized labor and working people."

RESPONSE: Yes

How will you use your public office to end corporate constitutional rights and big money in politics?

"At the city council level, a key way to end corporate constitutional rights and big money in politics is to support the growth of the local economy so that corporations cannot grow and be extractive in the first place. To create a regenerative local economy, I support the following strategies:

Continued active engagement with residents about what types of local goods and services do we need and want in our community; engage with local entrepreneurs and associations to find these services; also engage with aspiring entrepreneurs (especially youth) about messages of opening your business locally.
Ensure developments with public subsidy have local community benefits in the form of construction and permanent livable wage jobs.
Support inclusionary zoning efforts to require affordable housing units for private non-subsidized large developments so workers have an affordable place to live.
Meet and exceed goals for minority and disadvantaged businesses contracting with the city with additional points for local zip code specific firms.
Accountability is important and I would reinstate the city’s Market Watch report of building development and jobs and communicate this to residents so everyone knows how well we are doing as a city.
Support the creation of more worker owned cooperatives in the city. We have a high number of businesses owned by the baby boomer generation with only 15 percent having succession plans. This presents a great opportunity for East Siders to learn, operate and co-own a business with others. These are businesses that cannot be outsourced."

RESPONSE: Yes

How will you use your public office to end corporate constitutional rights and big money in politics?

"As a daughter of refugees, I've lived through the injustices of our society prioritizing corporations over people. My parents have worked for the same company for nearly 20 years. To this day, they only earn a little over $15/hour while their CEOs walk away with a paycheck that is disproportionately higher when compared to laborers'. I believe that all working families should live a life that is long, fulfilled, and joyful. In an ideal world, no working family should have to experience the pain of not having enough. The reality we live in is far behind from this ideal world, but I know we can get there. I will use the value of Citizens Before Corporations to center regular, everyday citizens and dismantle the injustices in our system that benefit corporations every day. We need corporations to pay their fair share of tax dollars and hire locally so that we keep our dollars in the community."

Cori Bush for Congress is a grassroots, 100% people-funded campaign that puts her fellow constituents first. Even as a candidate for federal office, Cori answers to the people only. As a federal representative, she will work tirelessly to ensure that every vote and every voice in this country is counted equally. Cori is passionate about economic and racial justice; the rights to healthcare and education; and sustaining the environment, and she knows that only fierce, bold leadership that will rewrite the rules of politics, roll back constitutional rights for corporations, and chip away at the influence of big money on our government can achieve all of the above. Cori Bush is the people that she seeks to represent; she can win this fight without corporate dollars; and, if elected, she will legislate to dismantle the codependency between big money and our government.

We have the capacity to do what is right. Let us hone this opportunity. Once in office, I will do everything to my ability to help overturn Citizens V. United by Constitutional amendment.
