Sunday Night Video – Rachel Maddow Interviews Steve Bullock About Containing Corporate Campaign Spending
June 3, 2012 Leave a comment
The unrestrained corporate campaign spending brought to us by the activist judges on the Supreme Court may be the worst of the worst in our corrupt political system. That’s why I’m eager to hear crumbs of hope, rays of light, and the like, such as former Justice John Paul Stevens stating that he thinks Citizens United will be revisited. Here, Rachel Maddow interviews Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock on the case he’s fighting, seeking to allow Montana to continue to limit campaign spending as it has done for 100 years. Who knows what will happen with the Supreme Court. On the one hand, occasionally conservatives care about states rights. But will they care when the states right is to restrain corporations from buying themselves more politicians?
BULLOCK: In 1906, a newspaper in Montana said the greatest living issue that confronts us today is whether the corporations shall control the people or the people shall control the corporations.
