Recently, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved a joint resolution offered by Sen. Tom Udall proposing a new amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The amendment would give Congress the power to regulate and place limits on political spending, not just from campaigns and SuperPACs, but any political spending.
Taking a loose interpretation of the language could give Congress broad censorship power over all forms of media.
It's the biggest communications power grab by the federal government since the Fairness Doctrine, only with far more potential to do harm.
The resolution, which has been cosponsored by 43 Democratic senators and two independents, is now eligible to be brought to the Senate floor by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., at any time.
