Common Sense

Looks like we’re all in agreement on this one:

Americans of both parties overwhelmingly oppose a Supreme Court ruling that allows corporations and unions to spend as much as they want on political campaigns, and most favor new limits on such spending, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Eight in 10 poll respondents say they oppose the high court’s Jan. 21 decision to allow unfettered corporate political spending, with 65 percent “strongly” opposed. Nearly as many backed congressional action to curb the ruling, with 72 percent in favor of reinstating limits.

The poll reveals relatively little difference of opinion on the issue among Democrats (85 percent opposed to the ruling), Republicans (76 percent) and independents (81 percent).

  1. Like they say in that picante sauce commercial, “Get a rope!”
    Chief Justice Roberts sends his regards.

  2. Anyone—-even those without rocket scientist creds—-would realize what a stupid majority we have on the SC bench. Hell, just the fact that the law had been in effect for so many years is justification to not FUCK with it…………..if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!!

  3. Maybe I’m being a little jaded here, but does this poll really matter since the opinions of the American citizenry have little relevance in our current political system?
