The first paragraph says it all - corporations rule this country now and will continue to do so as long as they are allowed to spend whatever they wish on politics
Court rejects corporate campaign spending limits
WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Monday reaffirmed its 2-year-old decision allowing corporations to spend freely to influence elections. The justices struck down a Montana law limiting corporate campaign spending.
By a 5-4 vote, the court's conservative justices said the decision in the Citizens United case in 2010 applies to state campaign finance laws and guarantees corporate and labor union interests the right to spend freely to advocate for or against candidates for state and local offices.
