David Cobb Speaking in Portland 2016

David Cobb, Jill Steins campaign manager addresses an enthusiastic crowd in Portland.

Cobb is also a co-founder of Move to Amend, an organization dedicated to overturning the Supreme Court decision on Citizens United.In their decision,the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government.

A high point of the talk was his insistence that one cannot expect to change the Democratic party from the inside, listing the experiences of Kucinich, Gore, and others who upon losing their bid for the presidency, started a democratic group to do just that. They failed, and the democratic party remains mired in money and ruled by Wall Street.
