You may recall that on January 21, 2010 the Supreme Court decided that corporations and labor unions could directly and expressly advocate for, or agains, political candidates for federal office. That, in addition to the 34,000+ lobbyists in D.C. !
Could corporation and labor union money corrupt our democracy?
Does the ruling minimize our individual freedom to vote?
How might that help "kick the can down the road" re our S&P rating for the new "Super Committee"?
