Supreme Court rolls back campaign cash limitsObama slams 'green light to a new stampede of special interest money'
WASHINGTON - In a landmark ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday struck down laws that banned corporations from using their own money to support or oppose candidates for public office.
By 5-4 vote, the court overturned federal laws, in effect for decades, that prevented corporations from using their profits to buy political campaign ads. The decision, which almost certainly will also allow labor unions to participate more freely in campaigns, threatens similar limits imposed by 24 states.
It leaves in place a ban prohibiting corporations and unions from directly contributing funds to candidates for any use.
The five conservative members of the high court were the ones who made this happen.
Conservatives....the ones who say that the liberals legislate from the bench.
Well if this ain't legislating, I don't know what is. Those five corporate owned conservatards just threw all of under the corporate America bus.
If Congress doesn't act quickly to reign this in we will have seen the last of true democracy in these United States.
Folks, we are fucked. We are soooo fucked!
