Obvious: Obama wants to cut off GOP money

Citizens United ended the limits on corporation, and union, privately spending money on political campaigns. This had little effect on union because they were already spending all the money they wanted to on campaign under the guise of union activity. Unions may have spent as much as $300 million getting Obama elected in 2008. Since Citizens United, Republican supporting Super-PACS are out fundraising unions.

From The DC:
President Barack  Obama used the online springboard provided by Reddit to dive into the media  crush at the GOP convention, with a skillfully executed call for a  constitutional amendment to curb the free-speech of wealthier people and  corporations.
“I think we need to seriously consider mobilizing a constitutional amendment  process to overturn Citizens United. … Even if the amendment process falls  short, it can shine a spotlight of the super PAC phenomenon and help apply  pressure for change,” Obama said during 4:30 p.m. EST online event.

Of course - nothing says "freedom" like dues collected by force, and spent on whatever the union bosses prefer.
