In a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting this week, Texas Senator Ted Cruz lambasted Democratic Senators for introducing Senate Joint Resolution #19, an amendment to the U-S Constitution which he believes drastically weakens first amendment rights.
The amendment Cruz opposes reads in part: “Congress shall have power to regulate the raising and spending of money and in-kind equivalents with respect to Federal elections, including through setting limits on—
(1) the amount of contributions to candidates for nomination for election to, or for election to, Federal office; and
(2) the amount of funds that may be spent by, in support of, or in opposition to such candidates.”
Senator Cruz introduced an amendment of his own. You might recognize the wording . . . .
