The President on SCOTUS Corporate Free Speech

The President this week talked about the Supreme Court decision that opened the floodgates for special interest money to flood the political system. The Court broadened the concept of First Amendment rights for corporations, enabling corporate and other special interest money broad new access to the system. The link above contains all of the opinions written by the Justices, not just the majority opinion by Justice Kennedy. And the exchange between Chief Justice Roberts and lead dissenter Justice Stevens is highlighted in the “Supreme Court Memo” column over at the New York Times. A legislative remedy to the Court decision? Lots of talk about it, but I don’t hold out much hope for change.

One Response to The President on SCOTUS Corporate Free Speech

    Your Honor,

    Need some fair and balanced time. Unions have been annointed with the same rights in this decision.

    Have unions participated in the Obama election? To the tune of millions. So much that they bought him lock, stock and barrel. Some evidence; Card Check (do away with closed ballot), Health care Buyout (get to keep Cadillac plans).

    Now your honor do you dispute anything here? Just let me know and we can duke it out.

    Remember free speach is for everyone, including Republicans, conservatives, gold fish and communists.
