This is more than a little scary. The Supreme Court is set to hand down its decision on Citizens United v Federal Election Commission tomorrow.
The decision will decide whether corporations can, once again, contribute money (as its form of “speech”) to political campaigns. If the Court decides in favor of Citizens United and against the FEC, rules under McCain-Feingold will, in effect, be ruled unconstitutional, allowing corporations even greater influence over politics and policy in America.
As if corporations weren’t insanely powerful enough already. The further and unfettered corporate screwing of America could begin immediately, and there’s very little that can be done to put the egg back into the shell.
