Supreme Ct.

Justices Strike Down Overall Political Donation Limit

Another blow to legislative attempts to limit the influence of wealthy donors. Seems that the conservative court will let nothing interfere with the right to buy candidates for Congress.

As Andy Borowitz puts it in The New Yorker,  "Supreme Court Defends Wealthy’s Right to Own Government"

The US is sometimes called the world's greatest democracy. Hard to justify this when we can't make elections fair, can't enact sensible gun safety laws, and can't stop states from limiting voting rights.
