  • I want to know, whatever happened to the people's choice?....it seems like there are a lot of things that get decided by "government" and not enought voting going on. It really makes me mad!

  • I am hoping there is something that can be done on a legislative level to nullify the effect of this ruling. Giving big companies a larger voice (because they can afford to spend $10 million while I struggle to donate $10 to a candidate's campaign) than the average American is as unAmerican as it gets. Thanks USSC, you have just given average Joe no chance of getting his voice heard.

    President Obama has already said they are going to try and pass something on a legislative level to combat this. This to me is indefensable

  • It's an outrage for both sides. Everyone should be pissed about it. Not just Democrats or Republicans, but every single citizen who can cast a vote.

  • Obama wants to stop it...he and all of us here don't want Big Business, corporations to elect anyone,....in this case, you can't blame our President. But I am sure if you try ,you can find another issue to blame on him. Hehe.

  • What Obama does not like anon is the fact that NOW he wont be able to shut out his dissenters by having the unions (SEIU) pander like they did to get him elected.NOW corps who obviously would tend to be more for conservatism because it is conservatism that is all for captalism and the free markets,president Obama is for socialism/marxism and taxing corps to death, will be able to contribute and contribute BIG.Which brings us to the conclusion of the REAL reason president Obama is worried..and you thought it is beacuse he cares about your voice...
