Corporations are not people.
We all know the Citizens United decision was disastrous for national politics. But not everyone knows that corporations are allowed to cut checks directly to campaigns in Vermont, even though that practice has been banned at the federal level for over 100 years.
Matt returned over 16,000 dollars of contributions from corporations because he firmly believes that corporations are not people and they shouldn't be able to buy elections! Matt is proud to have been the first candidate to return corporate contributions, and the candidate who has been calling for campaign finance reform from the start.
The first bill Matt will send to the legislature is a complete ban on corporate campaign contributions in Vermont.
