If he wants to legislate, why not run for Congress?
So with Citizens United
, the activist conservative Supreme Court ruled that corporations could spend unlimited amounts of unregulated money to buy elections.
Today, that same activist conservative Supreme Court ruled that unions had to get opt-in permission from members to use dues for political purposes (something petitioners didn't even ask for).
So does that mean corporations need to get opt-in permission from shareholders in order to be allowed to use company resources for political purposes? Logic would dictate so.
Not that this court cares about things like "logic" or "precedence" as it works furiously to discard our laws in pursuit of its conservative utopia.
3:39 PM PT (Chris Bowers): Take action against this. Sign our petition to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid asking him to introduce legislation requiring corporations to get opt-in permission from shareholders in order to use company resources for political purposes.
