"The Supreme Court today overturned a century-old restriction on corporations using their money to sway federal elections and ruled that companies have a free-speech right to spend as much as they wish to persuade voters to elect or defeat candidates for Congress and the White House.

In a 5-4 decision, the court's conservative bloc said corporations have the same First Amendment rights as individuals and, for that reason, the government may not stop corporations from spending freely to influence the outcome of federal elections."

The same rights as American Citizens with none of the responsibility.

So, the Constitution is still in effect!
BTY, the law that was overturned is McCain-Finegold and it is less than twenty years old. I can't believe that it is even that old!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

OK, I checked, this law was passed in 2002! Has it been a hundred years already? Did I miss a time warp some how?
That dumb donkey, Rachel Madcow, reported that this law was over a hundred years old too! And they wonder why no one watches them or believes what they say.

If you pay taxes you get to vote. Simple as that.

Now if you feed off the government, you shouldn't get to vote, but.. you still do.

So big money is now allowed to buy our leaders again.
Not that the laws make any difference.

the money just comes from and goes into, different pockets. They're all bought and paid for anyway. But I do think it's a step in the wrong direction. They're all scumbags....

Now that they don't have to hide it, it should be easier to see who is paying who.

Wonder if the sentiment here will still be the same when you figure out that foreign corporations with decidedly foreign interests are now allowed to dump whatever amount of money they see fit into our elections.

Fuzz believes that since foreign corporations pay U.S. taxes they should be allowed to vote, but instead they can spend an unlimited sum of money to influence MILLIONS of votes with absolutely no disclosure about who is funding it.

Repo man's got all day and all night! Lets go get a drink!

Doesn't matter! Even though everyone with a brain told our "heros" in DC that this law was unconstitutional, they went ahead and passed it anyway! Idiots!
Why couldn't they have done it properly in the first place? The same reason that they can't fix healthcare. They are too stupid and corrupt.
