VIDEO – Bill Moyers explains the fraud that is the Supreme Court’s decision (Citizens United, 2010) that money is speech and that free speech is protected by the Constitution. The court refused to reconsider the Citizens United decision last week, a story that was lost behind the coverage of the decision upholding the Affordable Care Act.
MOYERS: “Before deciding the fate of the Affordable Care Act, the Court announced it would not reconsider Citizens United. That’s the odious 5-4 decision two years ago that opened our elections to unlimited contributions. Within minutes of that announcement, right-wing partisans were crowing about the advantage they now own. An advantage not due to ideas or personalities, but to the sheer force of money.”
