    • On January 25, 2010, by Mazeman - We need a bill like this now more than ever after The Supreme Court’s 5 to 4 decision in Citizens United v. the Federal Election Commission on 1-21-10. As Justice John Paul Stevens wrote in his dissent against the ruling, “the court’s opinion is thus a rejection of the common sense of the American people, who have recognized a need to prevent corporations from undermining self government since the founding, and who have fought against the distinctive corrupting potential of corporate electioneering since the days of Theodore Roosevelt.” An unconstitutional and perhaps even treasonous court ruling by Roberts and the other 4 in favor.

    • On January 26, 2010, by JobyOne - A shortcoming yes. But if you were starving would you rather have a sandwich without lettuce or no sandwich at all? This is a funding reform bill, not a debate reform bill.

    • On January 29, 2010, by kbthiede - Well one thing is certain. A bill MUST be introduced to go against the court's ruling, embedding in law that there must be a limit on corporate funding in elections.
