Actually… that's not it.
Corporations can set up their own "super fund," outside of FEC regulations/oversight, pump that money into a PAC, then run ads for one candidate.
This gets them out of contribution limits. So if a Congressman in Texas is about to fail, because he's out of ad budget money. A corporation-funded SuperPAC could step in and spend millions on TV ads, without ever actually donating to the Congressman.
But you can bet that Congressman is now beholding to the corporation for saving his ass, just as if the corporation actually donated.

I agree about the citizens united, republicans brought it to the supreme court and the republican majority court made it law, we the people no longer exists. For the corporation by the corporations, they are our owners. Republicans have been giving them rights over us since Reagan, how can a citizen drug test another citizen and it be legal? Some how we are more Free under there BS laws!!!!

Ats has always been a debate forum and here this is with a one sided presentation...
don't think "a show" actually belongs here
"facebook makes people stupid" so because I spend part of the day being the person who happens to have 10's of thousands of followers and happens to also be creating the opinions I know others will follow i'm stupid?
