The Supreme Court just doubled down on its disastrous Citizens United decision -- and the purely corporate agenda they’ve adopted, despite widespread outcries from the public.
According to the Associated Press:
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.
The decision today proves just how much work we have to do in the months and years ahead to rid our democracy of corrupting money. What’s more, with a broken Supreme Court, the solution can only come from one source: progressives like us.
