Chuck Schumer just sent out his take on the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling in the Citizens United case. The decision lifts the amount of money corporations and unions can spend on behalf of candidates (though it leaves the contribution limits to candidates in place).
“This activist and far reaching decision is even worse than we had feared. This opens the floodgates and allows special interest money to overflow our elections and undermine our democracy. The bottom line is, the Supreme Court has just predetermined the winners of next November’s election. It won’t be the Republican or the Democrats and it won’t be the American people; it will be Corporate America.”
