Being for Campaign Finance Reform
The Supreme Court is set when it returns on September 9, a month early, to decide if there should be no limit on how and when corporations and unions can give to political campaigns, a law that has been in place for 100 years. Does this sound like dismantling the Sherman Anti-Trust Act of 1890 and the Glass Stegall Act of 1933 which aided in the corruption on Wall Street that nearly brought the global financial system to a screeching halt and eroded the savings of millions of Americans? Here I was thinking that we should do away with corporate financing altogether and the Supreme Court will soon decide if corporations and unions should have no limit at all. Does this not undermine our representative democracy?
