    I agree but if I were a democrat I would be worried about an appeal to the present supreme court, especially justice Lond Dong Silver.

    Your partisan spin on the what Schumer is purposing:

    "As chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, which is the committee with jurisdiction over these issues, I'm announcing that we will hold hearings on the impact of this decision within the next of couple of weeks," Schumer said.
    That is what is ridiculous...

    This is ridiculous.
    Yes, that's what I said. You're being ridiculous...

    Actually what's ridiculous is one of the most hyper partisan posters on the left on this site storming in, not even bothering to do this amazing thing called "Reading the thread" and thinking he's making some grand revelation in a sarcastic and jerkish way that one of his far more reasonable ideological compatriots already made and had been discussed at some length.

    That's what I think is ridiculous personally.

    Since you appear to be too lazy today to even read the FIRST PAGE let me help you without causing you too much strain, as I'm sure it would be difficult.

    That should give you a good indication of where to begin the conversation, as you're not worth rehashing things already talked about over 4 days ago with a far more reasonable poster

    If the Supreme Court strikes down a law passed by Congress, it's certainly Congress's right to come back and pass a new law that is within the guidelines expressed by the Supreme Court.
    I actually agree with this. It is only a study to assess the impact of the Supreme Court decision. It is not a threat in any way against the Supreme Court.

    Granted, only two things...

    One the beginning of the piece made it appear it was actually simply a hearing ABOUT the decision, not about how to access the impact of it. Which caused the misconception

    Two...Schumers committee has no legislative reason to access the impact of the decision. The Rules committee has no oversight to my knowledge of campaign finance legislation. It has oversight over internal rules of the senate, which I don't believe campaign finance would fall under. I'm not sure how campaign finance fits into "administration of congressional buildings, and with credentials and qualifications of members of the Senate, including responsibility for dealing with contested elections."

    The sorry thing is that this has nothing to do with campaign finance anyway.

    It's not about corporations giving money to candidates or anyone else. It's simply about spending their own money to express their own opinions. It's a blatant free speech issue. It never should have been restricted in the first place.

    And the impact will be small.

    Corporations could already run ads about campaigns. They just had to avoid using certain "trigger words" that invoked the law, like "vote for." It was a sham anyway.
