Supreme Court Reversed Anti-Citizens United Ruling From Montana

25 Jun

  The conservative republican Supreme Court of the United States of America continues to do damage.

 So,…. tell me,…. what happened to states rights? Apparently they’re only pertinent when they relate to a conservative point of view.

 Next up, —- the ACA.  

Supreme Court Reversed Anti-Citizens United Ruling From Montana

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday struck down Montana’s century-old limits on corporate political spending, putting an end to the state’s resistance to Citizens United and effectively expanding that controversial ruling to the state and local elections.

Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, decided in January 2010, struck down federal limits on campaign spending by corporations and unions as violations of the First Amendment. Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing on behalf of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, reached the bold conclusion that “independent expenditures, including those made by corporations, do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption,” and therefore “[n]o sufficient governmental interest justifies limits on the political speech of nonprofit or for-profit corporations.”
 
 No,… no,… not at all. Very limited possibilities of corruption or undue influence.
