Comments are off for this post.
http://www.newser.com/section/4/politics-news-headlines.html In a stunning reversal of the nation's federal campaign finance laws, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Thursday that free-speech rights permit groups like corporations and labor unions to directly spend on political campaigns, prompting the White House to pledge "forceful" action to undercut the decision. In a written statement, President Obama said the high court had "given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics."
