Supreme Court Ruling on Free Speech to Produce Liberal Conniption Fits
Liberals will cry about this but allow Unions to steal from their members to support people they don’t like.
Check it out:
“My gosh, oh gosh! This is just wonderful!” And they’re deluding themselves just like they did it in 2010. But there’s something else that’s happened today that’s gonna bring ’em down to earth, and it won’t be long before they’re all on TV having conniption fits. “Supreme Court Strikes Down Overall Limits on Political Contributions.” This is just unacceptable.
“The Supreme Court has struck down limits in federal law on the overall campaign contributions the biggest individual donors may make to candidates, political parties and political action committees. The justices said in a 5-4 vote Wednesday that Americans have a right to give the legal maximum to candidates for Congress and president, as well as to parties and PACs, without worrying that they will violate the law when they bump up against a limit on all contributions, set at $123,200 for 2013 and 2014.
“That includes a separate $48,600 cap on contributions to candidates. The case, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, did not call into question the maximum amount an individual can donate to a single candidate or political party in a two-year election cycle — those limits are $2,600 to a candidate, $32,400 to a national political party and $5,000 to a political committee.”
Those are unchanged. The case did not call those maximum amounts into question. It’s the overall limit that all of your donations add up to that the justices struck down. “Chief Justice John Roberts announced the decision, which split the court’s liberal and conservative justices. Roberts said the aggregate limits do not act to prevent corruption, the rationale the court has upheld as justifying contribution limits.”
